NORTH CAROLINA METHODIST BICENTENNIAL 
CURRITUCK COURTHOUSE-SEPTEMBER 28, 1972 

Joseph Pilmore was born in Tadmouth, Yorkshire, England, on October 31, 1739. He was 
converted under John Wesley, who assisted with his education at Kingswood School. He was 
one of Wesley's itinerants in England about four years. 

Joseph Pilmore and Richard Boardman were selected as the first pair of English clergymen 
to be appointed by John Wesley to go to America. Both arrived in 1769 and remained for five 
years. Pilmore became pastor of historic Old Saint George's Church in Philadelphia. He soon 
drew large congregations there. In 1772 Pilmore made a southern journey through the colonies 
preaching and establishing societies as he went. Lovely Lane Church in Baltimore and 
Monumental Church in Portsmouth, Virginia, are only two of the continuing groups he 
organized. 

In September Pilmore entered North Carolina reporting that the day was hot and the 
journey was through the woods. After stopping for the night at an unnamed place, he began 
again in the morning, "and a little before noon arrived at Currituck Courthouse." 

"The people gathered sooner than I expected, I began without delay, and declared to 
Churchmen, Baptists, and Presbyterians, 'He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with 
fire,' and God made his word like a hammer that breaketh the rock to pieces." 

While in North Carolina for about three days, he was entertained by Colonel Hallowell 
Williams, member of the Congress held at Halifax in 1776 and an active and devoted Methodist. 
After preaching at a chapel five miles from Williams' the next day, he held another service at 
Narrow's Chapel which was about twenty-five miles south of Currituck. Then he returned to 
Tidewater Virginia before continuing south to Charleston and Savannah. 

In recognition of this first Methodist sermon preached by an Anglican clergyman under 
assignment by John Wesley, a statewide celebration was held on September 28, 1972 at! 
Currituck Courthouse marking the two hundredth anniversary. Dr. Frederick Maser, editor of 
Pilmore's Joumal.znd Bishop Herbert Bell Shaw of the A.M.E. Zion Church were principal 
speakers in addition to several local histories which were given to comprise the program for the 
occasion. 

Joseph Pilmore's picture is on the cover of the 1972 North Carolina Conference Journal 
with the date of this historic event. The Reverend C. Franklin Grill, chairman of the Conference 
Commission on Archives and History presided after serving nearly a year as program chairman 
of a group of representatives of all Methodist bodies in the state to plan for the event. 

This historical statement was supplied by the Reverend C. Franklin Grill, chairman of the 
Conference Commission on Archives and History.

William Carleton Wilson 

Secretary, North Carolina Annual Conference 

1953-1972 

THIS 1972 JOURNAL OF THE NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE IS 

DEDICATED IN HONOR OF AND DEEP APPRECIATION FOR 

CARLETON WILSON. 



A RESOLUTION 

John Wesley looked upon the world as his parish. 

W. Carleton Wilson has served this entire North Carolina Conference as tri 
larger part of his parish. It was as if God had called him to this special ministr 
from which he will retire at this 147th annual session in Durham. 

Carleton Wilson was born in Hillsborough, June 7, 1900. Fifty years ago, i 
1922, he was Licensed to Preach. He was admitted into the Conference in 192 
during the session at Trinity Church in Durham. 



That same year he joined the Statistical Staff of the Conference; within the 
Conference his thoroughness was soon recognized, and in 1937 he was chosen as 
Conference Statistician. 

In 1953 at the Annual Conference session at Duke Memorial Church, Brother 
Wilson was elected Conference Secretary, a post he has held continuously for 19 
and 1/2 years. 

In 1956 he was elected as the first Clerical Delegate to the General Conference 
and began serving on the General and Jurisdictional Conference Secretarial Staffs. 
In 1968 he was chosen as Secretary of the Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference. 
He has served the Church through seven General Conferences (56, 60, 64, 68, 72, 
and special sessions in 66 and 70). 

As the parents of four children, Brother Carleton and Sister Essie have brought 
a significant witness to every parish they have served. After the loss of an infant 
daughter, they bravely bore the wounds of grief when their son, Bill, a bombadier, 
was shot down during the II World War over Yugoslavia. Two children . . .Mary 
Earle Berger, of Roxboro, and L. T. (Ted) Wilson, a member of the N. C. 
Conference . . .are faithful servants of the church. 

As Conference Secretary and Journal Editor, Carleton Wilson has brought to 
the office a concern to see everyone treated fairly. His thorough, exacting manner 
has enabled him to work with details emphasizing the need for accuracy. While 
collecting and preserving records, he has remained an earnest seeker, a sincere man 
of God. His patience has been put to the test again and again. 

As the "Scribe" of our Conference, he has been, as the early scribe must have 
been, able to "cipher" . . .and from this came the meaning of "secretary." The early 
Scribes were also the wise men, "the men of understanding," the just men. In 
post-exilic times they were men of sacred letters . . .in addition they were copyists, 
editors and guardians of the textual purity of Scripture. 

The classic description of the Scribe (or Secretary) is from one of the books of 
the Apocrypha and befits in many ways this man we honor today: 

"He will be filled with the spirit of understanding, 
le will pour forth words of wisdom 

and give thanks unto the Lord in prayer 
Hie will direct his counsel and knowledge aright and meditate on his secrets. 

Many will praise his understanding and it will never be blotted out. 
-lis memory will not disappear, and his name will live thru all generations. 

If he lives long, he will leave a name greater than a thousand 
ind if he goes to rest, it is enough for him." 

On this historic occasion before the election of a new conference secretary to 
bllow W. Carleton Wilson, a line from one of the prayers of Augustine befits the 
nan: "The best gift we can give to men and to Thee is the gift of a good life." So 
raise to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit for this good life! 

-William K. QuicK 

Ihis Resolution was unanimously adopted by the North Carolina Annual 
Conference in session at Durham, N. C. on Monday afternoon, June 5, 1972.)

ORGANIZATION: CONFERENCE AGENCIES 

Apologia 

At the beginning of a new quadrennium, it is very difficult to obtain all of the officers a 
ex-officio members of the various agencies. The editor made the decision to issue this Jouri 
with some of the information incomplete so that you might receive it in a reasonable period 
time. It would be greatly appreciated if chairmen and/or secretaries would assume responsibil 
for sending the Conference Secretary their completed organization when it occurs. It will 
further assumed that they will be responsible for the updating of their agencies' personnel fr< 
year to year so that the Journal might be kept current. 

ONE PARTICULAR NOTE: Since many of the Jurisdictional and General Conference Agenc 
have not completed their organization and will not for several months, we have omitted, 
this year only, the section containing Clerical and Lay Members of the North Carol 
Conference serving General and Jurisdictional Conference Agencies of the United Method 
Church. This section will be in next year's Journal. You will appreciate that obtaining all of t 
information at the beginning of a new quadrennium, with many changes in terminology a

ucture is almost impossible. The 1973 Journal will have this information corrected and up to 
:e. Thank you for your understanding of the factors involved in our decision to print the 
irnal so that the remainder of the information might be of maximum service to you.

Alphabetical Roll-Conference Directory- 1972-73 

(Corrected to October 8, 1972) 
IOTE: Information for the Conference Directory derives principally from two sources: from 
the ministers themselves on the cards provided them and filed with the Conference 
Secretary, and from District Directories furnished the Conference Secretary by the 
Superintendents. However, each minister is personally responsible for the correct re- 
porting of his own address.

North Carolina Annual Conference 

THE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH 
THE NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

Resolution Honoring Bishop William Ragsdale Cannon 




The dimension of a leader must be tested, not alone by the measure of his past, but by h 
grasp of the future. When William Ragsdale Cannon came to be the Bishop of Raleigh Are; 
Methodist people were delighted with his sensitivity to the full sweep of Church history, hi 
penetrating Biblical insight, and the common touch of his preaching. Already, he had bee 
known as an outstanding Methodist scholar and educator, and as dean of one of the Church 
great theological schools. He had established himself as a participant in the highest councils c 
the world Church, and as a champion of ecumenical concern. Now, in North Carolina, he was t 
become known as well for his commitment to the vitality of every local church, and the we 
being of the laymen and clergy who served in them. 

In these four years, Bishop Cannon has served this Conference and the United Methodi; 
Church well from the speaker's platform. Not to be forgotten are the stirring words he spok 
linking the concerns of the Church and Duke University upon the occasion of the inauguratio 
of President Terry Sanford. On other occasions, he has expressed the great heart of the Churc 
in his fatherly prayer with members of a local church come to meet with him to discuss the: 
concern about their pastor. The Bishop enlivened the Annual Conference Sessions with hi 
quick wit. Last year, he deeply moved us as he reflected upon the call of the Conference t 
name a black district superintendent, and in these reflections his words called us to new leve! 
of Christian progress. Many other signs of the quality of his leadership have been given; som 
well known, others disclosed the privacy of confidential deliberation. 

The North Carolina Conference expresses its deep graditude for all the contributions c 
Bishop Cannon during this quadrennium just ending. But now, we would honor him for th 
high quality of hope that he has brought to our task, and for his vision of what we can ye 
become. We are grateful for the quadrennium that we have been privileged to have him as ou 
Episcopal Leader. 

Unanimously adopted by the North Carolina Annual Conference with gratitude, respect, an 
a standing ovation. We honor him for honoring us with his wise and stalwart leadership.

SECTION HI 

MINUTES OF THE SPECIAL SESSION OF THE 

NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

EDENTON STREET UNITED METHODIST CHURCH 

Raleigh, North Carolina 
October 23, 1971 

;ning: The North Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church, Southeastern 
Jurisdiction, convened in Special Session at Edenton Street United Methodist Church in 
Raleigh, North Carolina, October 23, 1971, at 10:00 AM. Bishop William R. Cannon, 
resident bishop, presided. 

otional: Hymn No. 27, "Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise", was sung by the Conference. 
The Invocation and devotional were given by the Reverend Jack W. Page. 

tions: W. C. Wilson, Conference Secretary, made motions concerning the Bar of the 
Conference, which were adopted. He moved that the Rules of Order as printed in the 1970 
Conference Journal be in effect for the Special Session. The conference so ordered. 
The Secretary moved that the agenda to be considered would consist of the document 
mailed to all delegates in October in lieu of the recommendation adopted at Annual 
Conference. 

it of Order: James H. Coile raised the question that the agenda should conform to the 
stated call as adopted in June, since the later study was different. 

Bishop Cannon ruled that the recommendation presented in June did not actually present 
the resolution of the Conference Board of Pensions concerning the proposed Pension Plan. 
The agenda was adopted by the vote of the conference. 

istration: Delegates were asked to sign cards which would constitute the official attendance 
record. 

ers: Those tellers who served during the regular session of Annual Conference were asked to 
serve in the Special Session, if needed. John Meares and Chester Andrews were named as 
Chief Tellers. 

entation of Proposed Plan: Bishop Cannon recognized Clifton W. Everett, Chairman of the 
Conference Board of Pensions, to make the presentation. Mr. Everett stated that in 1964 
there was no reserve fund to guarantee future retirement benefits to ministers. Pension 
costs have doubled since then. The Study Committee, which included representatives of all 
conference boards, recommended adoption of a funded plan. Further study had been made 
since June. He called on Norwood L. Jones, Secretary of the Board of Pensions, to present 
the proposed Plan. 

>lution Read: Norwood Jones read the resolution adopted at the Annual Conference in 
Fayette ville in June: 

"We recommend that the North Carolina Conference adopt a funded pension program 
within the North Carolina Conference itself." 
He then read the report of the Board of Pensions and gave background information 
concerning the study. After restating the resolution, he moved its adoption. The motion 
was seconded. 

lanation of Plan: C. W. Everett asked that privilege be given to George Forehand, Merritt 
Jones, Wade Pierce, and H. Gray Hutchinson to speak to the resolution. Permission was 
granted to them by vote of the conference. 

George Forehand: Laymen have an obligation to all ministers for past, present, and future 
service. Corporations provide pension and retirement plans for their employees. 

of Order: Reginald Ponder raised the question that someone should now be allowed to 
speak in opposition. 

Bishop Cannon ruled that this was part of the Board's presentation, and time for discussion 
and debate would come later. 

Merritt Jones: Explained the pension program would provide broader benefits for wives 
and children of ministers. By the year 2003 all obligation for past services would be met. 
Money then would be available for other causes. He thought laymen would be willing to 
spend an extra $1.50 to provide benefits for ministers and their families. 



134 North Carolina Annual Conference 

Wade Pierce: This is the right movement we should make. We have a moral responsibili 

to our ministers. "Where does the money come from?" Good stewardship is the answer. 

H. Gray Hutchinson, member of the firm which made the actuarial study for the Board! 

Pensions: Declined to make a formal statement, but volunteered to answer any questic 

for clarification. 
Questions for Clarification: Bishop Cannon stated that before final action was to be taken, til 

would be given for questions for clarification, and then time for debate would be allow*' 
Robert Morgan: "How will the percentage of increase in the Single Figure Askings be figure 

N. L. Jones: The Cabinet and Commission on World Service & Finance would allocate 

each church its amount. Some churches might get a little more or less than 10% increal 
Fred P. Brooks: "Past service obligation has been $9,000,000.00, but the June figure shoi 

$11,000,000.00. Why?" 

Mr. Hutchinson explained the General Board Plan requires even more. This plan gives I 

Conference greater advantage. 
Alfonso Henry: Asked question concerning the amount per service year. Is 10% increase 

addition to amounts other agencies might ask for? 

Mr. Hutchinson: The figure is based on present-day figures. 

Charles Hubbard: The Pension Funding Plan has nothing to do with askings of o*ij 

conference groups. This 10% represents cost of the Funding Plan presented by Confereij 

Board of Pensions-this is as of now. At the present time the total of Single Figure Askirj 

received from churches must have added to it earnings from Central Funds in order] 

meet present requirements. 
William K. Quick: "If churches fail to raise this 10% increase in Single Figure Askings, wj 

alternative plan is there to fund the Reserve Pension Fund?" 

C. S. Hubbard: "Salaries and debts have prior claims. What the Conference decides toe] 

determines whether the funding of the Reserve Pension Fund will also be a prior claim! 

the Single Figure Askings. Failure to raise all our askings would cause other programs of j 

church to suffer." 

Mr. Hutchinson: "We must increase the Single Figure Askings tremendously to ml 

pension needs, or reduce our commitment to our retired men." 
Question: "What about transfers in and out of the Conference?" 

Bishop Cannon: "The North Carolina Conference is responsible only for those yearl 

minister served in the North Carolina Conference." 
Horace Garris: "The Current Income Distribution plan now used is apportioned to lo* 

churches. Will this be carried as a part of Single Figure Askings, and will the Single FigJ 

Askings be reduced in 2003 A. D.?" 

C. W. Everett: "Yes." 
Ray Phillips: "Is the minister's contribution to Ministers' Retirement Fund voluntary t 

compulsory?" 

C. W. Everett: "It will continue as it now is - voluntary." 
David Moe: "Will The $78 per service year rate remain constant?" 

C. W. Everett: "The Annual Conference sets the rate. If rate is increased, the total cos'T 

pension fund also increases." 
E. C. Crawford: "Par. 1379 of Discipline provides that the rate per service year be set by J 

Annual Conference. If General Conference changes this paragraph to conflict with 

Plan, what happens?" 

C. W. Everett: "The Conference Board of Pensions has been advised by the General Bo 

that there is no conflict now." 

N. L. Jones: "If the General Conference makes changes, we will have to go along v 

them." 
Grady Dawson: "A) Can we take longer than thirty years to pay the Plan? B) Can 

discontinue it at any time? C) Can we decide to go to the General Board's Plan? D) Is 

Plan flexible to allow for financial difficulties?" 

H. G. Hutchinson: "Building up our reserves will make it easier to join the General Be 

plan later. We can dip into reserves to pay a current year's obligations, but we must t 

make up the deficit or reduce benefits in the future. The immediate liabilities for 1971 

amount to $600,000.00 We must put in a little more than predicted." 



Journal of Proceedings 135 

\. Clement: "Can we transfer reserve funds of other agencies to apply against this initial 

payment into the Ministers' Reserve Pension Fund?" 

N. L. Jones: 'if other groups have funds they are willing to release, we would be willing to 

accept them. We cannot draw on them." 
Idell Walker: "14% of the present Single Figure Askings goes for Conference Claimants. 

Would this 10% increase be over and above that?" 

C. S. Hubbard: "This would be 24%, as it is now apportioned by World Service." 

C. W. Everett: "The 10% increase for MRPF would remain constant. The 14% for 

Conference Claimants depends on the rate set by the Annual Conference." 
ence Warren offered a motion. Bishop Cannon ruled that a motion would be out of order 

during the question-and-answer period, 
rles Smith: "How does our service year rate compare with other Conferences and other 

denominations? What is their system of funding?" 

N. L. Jones: "The General Board sets 1% of average annual salary, which would be $69.00 

per service year. N. C. Conference pays $75.00 plus Blue Cross-Blue Shield insurance. The 

Western N. C. Conference pays $68.00 on an average annual salary of $8600.00. No figures 

are available on other denominations." 
I Brown: "So far, 66 Annual Conferences have joined the General Board plan. Are we 

smarter than they, or do we not know enough?" 

N.L. Jones: "There are several unknowns hi financing by the General Board plan. The 

Conference Board felt we could do better for our own particular situation with our own 

plan." 
I Shoaf: "Can you translate the 10% increase into dollar figures?" 

H. G. Hutchinson: $270,000.00 is the difference between the Current Income and the 

Reserve Pension cost. It will be the same for the next 30 years. 
W. Ponder: "The outline of the plan gives the figure $791,856 Tor Pension Cost Only' . Will 

this increase if the per service year rate is increased?" 

C. W. Everett: "In setting up the plan, the committee had to use an assumption based on a 

constant figure. Past Service payment is constant. Future payment may be variable." 
tion: H. S. Garris moved to close the question period and go to debate. Motion carried. 
tion: Clarence Warren offered a motion concerning a method of assessing the increase in 

Single Figure Askings to local churches. Bishop Cannon ruled the motion out of order 

since the debate was on acceptance of the Plan itself and not on the method of funding. 
tion: Delos O'Daniel moved suspension of rules to give everyone an opportunity to speak. 

Bishop Cannon: "There are no rules to keep everybody from speaking." 
A. Clarke spoke against the Plan. "A major concern is what is not spelled out in the 

resolution. The $78 per service year rate is too small. To pass this resolution would have 

adverse effect on those already retired." 
rious Question: H. M. Wilkinson moved the previous question on all that was before the 

body. 
| The Motion was defeated 
stitute Motion: William K. Quick offered the following substitute motion for the one 

presented by the Conference Board of Pensions: 

"That the Annual Conference authorize the District Superintendents to share these 

urgent pension needs of the North Carolina Conference with each Charge Conference 

within the North Carolina Conference, in a regular or called session, during the 1971-72 

conference year, and that delegates to the 1972 session in Durham be prepared to vote on 

a reserve pension plan." 

Quick stated: "This is the most urgent Special Session since the one in which two new 

colleges were established. We cannot get this 10% increase raised now. If lay people are 

made aware of the urgency of this program, they will support this program." 
endment to Substitute: A. D. Byrd offered an amendment to the Quick substitute: "That 

we ask the Board of Pensions to provide the 80-page study for each delegate within the 

next thirty days." 

The Byrd amendment was defeated. 
[ification: J. W. Page stated that these charge conferences would have to be held before the 

Commission on World Service and Finance held its budget hearings December 6. 

Otherwise, any action on the Reserve Pension Plan would be delayed one year. 
K. Quick: "The purpose of my motion was to delay action one year in order to provide 



136 North Carolina Annual Conference 

time for study. More information is necessary if we are to raise the funds. Hurried appro\ 

of the plan means we will come up short of the dollars needed to finance the plan." 
C. W. Everett: "This Resolution offered by the Conference Board of Pensions is right. O 

obligation is to our claimants. If you agree with the Resolution, when is the time to begi 

Every delay makes the additional cost greater. I offer no criticism of the General Boa 

plan, but the N. C. plan will mean a $2 million over-all decrease in cost. Learning sessio 

have' already been held in each district. Please defeat any effort to delay action." 
Point of Order: A. D. Byrd stated that district meetings discussed the General Board's pensii 

plan, not the N. C. plan. 

C. W. Everett: "Technically, Byrd is correct. However, the N. C. Plan is almost a replica 

the General Board plan. The initial cost and the over-all cost for the next thirty years w 

be less for the N. C. Plan." 
W. K. Quick: "We need to determine if charges will underwrite the program." 
J. H. Coile made a statement clarifying the Quick motion. 
Fred P.Brooks: Spoke for the Quick motion. Offered an amendment that at Charge Conferenc; 

"refinements " of the Plan be presented by the Conference Board of Pensions. 

The Chair ruled the Brooks amendment out of order. 
Previous Question: Frank I. Lloyd moved the previous question on the Quick substitv 
motion. 

The previous question was called. 
R. H. Stark asked for a re-reading of the Quick motion. 
Point of Inquiry: J.H. Coile asked, "What will a 'Yes' or 'No' vote on the Quick motion do; 

the Plan itself?" 

Bishop Cannon: "Nothing to the Plan. It will ascertain for the Annual Conference 

Durham whether the plan has been underwritten by the charges." 

W. K. Quick: "We will act in the Charge Conference on all that is before us today." 

Bishop Cannon: If Quick's motion is adopted, the Ministers' Reserve Pension Fund PI 

will be tabled until Annual Conference. 
Clarification: H. B. Lewis asked, "Will the action of the Charge Conferences be binding on tj 

Annual Conference?" 

Bishop Cannon: "No. It only delays action of this Conference until Annual Conference 5 

June, 1972." 
H. M. Wilkinson called for the vote. 
Bishop Cannon stated that after deciding on the Quick substitute, the Conference would st 

have to vote on the Plan itself. 

The Chair called for a count vote on the Quick substitute. A standing vote was taken, ai 

the Quick substitute defeated. 
Previous Question: Jack Crum moved the previous question on all before the house. It w 

approved. 
Vote by Orders: Wilbur Jackson moved that voting be done by orders. 

J. H. Coile pointed out there was no Disciplinary provision for voting by orders on £ 

Annual Conference level. 
The Ministers' Reserve Pension Plan presented by ihe N. C. Conference Board of Pensions v 
overwhelmingly approved. (Editor's note - The Plan 'as adopted is contained under the Board 
Pension's Report-Section on the Constitution in Section V of this Journal.) 
Motion: Clarence Warren asked if the motion he offered earlier would be in order at this poi 

Bishop Cannon asked him to submit his proposal to the Commission on World Service aj

The Invocation 

The Call to Confession 



140 North Carolina Annual Conference 

The Prayer of Confession: 

Gracious Father, Thou who art always willing to use us in spite of 
our faithfulness, we confess that while we have been chosen to be 
men's servants, we have tried to be their masters. Our Lord has given 
us the pattern for service, but we crave the successes, honors, and 
statistics which star us in bright lights. We pretend that we are ex- 
ceptions to humanity and hide behind excuses. We have closed our 
hearts to the prophetic signs of our times. We lack the conscience 
that should accompany our Christian profession. Forgive us, O Lord, 
and deliver us from our living death. Give us the courage to accept 
the pain of new birth that we may be renewed and healed from all 
our brokenness. In Christ's name we plead. Amen.

The Confession Liturgist: The Reverend Albert F. Fisher 

Leader: It is clear that none of us has been fully faithful to God 
and his neighbor. In light of this, and in accord with our 
Lord's instruction, let us begin our time together by mak- 
ing Common Confession, praying also for his gracious for- 
giveness. 

People: O God, we confess that we are linked by a common hu- 
manity to all sin and death which scars the earth. We 
confess that we, too, have done much that we should not 
have done, and left undone much that needs doing, be 
gracious, O God, and forgive our sins. By your Holy 
Spirit, show us those things which are right, and grant 
us the faith and courage to do them. 

Leader: We know through Jesus Christ that when we are open to 
receive forgiveness, the Holy God has long since wanted 
to bestow it. Take this forgiveness seriously, live as free 
men and women, and let renewed obedience be the mark 
of your thanksgiving. The peace of God be with you. 
Amen. 

The Prayer Our Lord Taught Us 

The Act of Praise 

Leader: We praise you, O God, for the wholeness we see in Christ. 
Your being and your doing are of one piece. 

People: We praise you for the compassion which we see in Christ 
and receive in his name. 

Leader: We praise you for the dignity with which you invest peo- 
ple who are without status among men. 

People: We praise you for the hope which you engender in men 
surrounded by death. 

Leader: We give thanks for all who have kept your name alive 
among us, and have honored you with lives of freedom and 
joy. 

People: We give thanks for all those who by quiet work have 
made their neighbors' lives more tolerable, and pray that 
that we may do the same. 

Leader: We give thanks for each day of life; for warmth of sun; for 
moon, stars, and changing seasons; for the gifts of sight, 
touch, sound, and the smell and taste of things. 

People: We give thanks for our lives in your world, O God, and 
for your presence in our midst; through Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen.

152 North Carolina Annual Conference 

SECOND DAY, MORNING SESSION 
Tuesday, June 6, 1972 

Conference Convened: At 8:30 A.M. following the prelude, "Prelude in C 
Major" by Johann Sebastian Bach, the Conference was called to order by Bishop 
William R. Cannon. They hymn, "0 For A Thousand Tongues to Sing" was sung by 
the Conference. The prayer was led by C. M. Mitchell. 

Program Council: Bishop William R. Cannon, presiding officer, called on N.W. 
Grant to present the Program Council report. Grant spoke clearly and directly to 
the issues, calling on the Conference to understand that the program now before 
them has been derived from the "grass roots" and it is now the Conference at large 
that decides what we will do as to the program of our Conference. "This is not the 
decision or action of the clergy or a small group of staff personnel, but of the entire 
Conference." Grant then presented the first two sections of the report, asked for 
deletion of Item 1 on page 17 of the Book of Recommendations and called the 
attention of the Conference to the Restructuring Report which had been distributed 
the preceding day. He explained the restructuring in terms of General Conference 
action and the forth-coming Discipline of the United Methodist Church in detail 
and pointed out that only the Conference could change the charter of the Program 
Council and that the changes were largely a matter of terminology so as to make 
our structure conform with all other levels of our Church structure. He explained 
the Restructuring Report item by item, giving particular attention to the number of 
members to constitute the various divisions, boards, commissions, and committees. 
Bishop Cannon placed the Restructuring Report before the Conference for question 
and discussion. Paul Carruth spoke of his concern about the placement of the, 
Conference Committee on Continuing Education referring to paragraph 5 of thej 
Report of the Executive Committee of the N.C. Conference Program Council 
concerning Annual Conference Structure, particularly this paragraph: 

"We recommend that in keeping with the action of the 1972 General 
Conference the Conference Committee on Continuing Education become a 1 
sub-committee of the Division of Ministry. " 
Paul Carruth asked for the deletion of the above. The motion was made by 
A.F. Fisher. Carruth called attention to the report of the N.C. United Methodist 
Commission on Continuing Education for Ministers on page 19 of the Book on 
Recommendations which would call for the composition of the Conference) 
Committee to continue as an agency made up of representatives from Annualj) 
Conference groups with traditional involvement in continuing education as had 
been the case in the 1968-1972 quadrennium. He pointed out that officials ofl 
continuing education of the General Church had been consulted with respect to the 
action of the General Conference. Assurance was given that General Conference) 
action on continuing education leaves the Annual Conference free to continue arjj 
interboard Committee along the lines called for in the Commission on Continuing] 
Education report. The recommendation of that report as found under section B orj 
page 19 of the Book of Recommendations is: 

"B. That the Committee be composed of the following: Five representatives of| 
the Conference Board of Ministry; one representative each from the following 
Conference agencies: Board of Education, Board of Evangelism, Board of 1 



Journal of Proceedings 153 

Missions, Commission on Town and Country Ministries, Board of Managers of 
the North Carolina Pastors' School; the Duke Divinity School; each Methodist 
College within the bounds of the Annual Conference; the Director of 
Continuing Education of the Duke Divinity School; a representative of the 
Program Council staff; and three members at large appointed by the Bishop." 
I.L. Watson questioned the advisability of taking continuing education from the 
Hvision of Higher Education and Ministry. 

Paul Carruth pointed out that both under the plan of the present 
uadrennium, and the plan of the 1972-1976 quadrennium, if the recommendation 
n page 19 is followed, the Committee on Continuing Education would include 5 
lembers from the Division of the Ministry. This would give clear recognition to the 
iterest and responsibility of that body for continuing education. In addition, other 
gencies which also have a legitimate concern for the continuing education of the 
linister would be represented. 

Reginald Ponder presented a substitute to the Fisher motion that the Program 
Council report be amended in item (2) on page five to change "sub-committee" to 
committee" so that the Conference Committee on Continuing Education would 
ecome a committee of the Division of Ministry, "and then the Committee could 
e constituted on the basis of the report on page 19 and then the problem seems to 
e solved, and I move you, sir, that we change the recommendation to be 
ommittee instead of sub-committee." The Bishop commented that Ponder had just 
loved to take out the "sub" before committee in place of deletion of the item, 
'he motion was seconded. 

Jack Crum called for clarification as to whether the action called for an 
iterboard group or a group composed only of members of one board. He asked 
'onder, "are you saying that it can be interboard as constituted in the Book [of 
Recommendations] ?" Ponder indicated in the affirmative. Crum replied, "All right, 
F that is understood. I am not sure that would be understood unless it is clearly 
pelled out that way." Bishop Cannon said, "Brother Grant, do you want to say 
ny thing on that, or does it help in any way?" N.W. Grant, "I'll accept the 
ommittee's suggestion. I think there is some confusion in the whole matter that I 
/ould like to clarify." Bishop Cannon, "He'll accept that. Do you accept that, 
Carruth?" Carruth responded that while he could accept the motion, he hesitated in 
iew of the fact that the structure in continuing education had been developed in 
ooperation with the Western North Carolina Conference, the Duke Divinity School 
nd the Duke Endowment. He stated he felt any changes should be made in 
onsultation with them. W.J. Neese spoke asking for trust in the Division of the 
dinistry. A.F. Fisher withdrew his motion in favor of Grant's acceptance of the 
wording of the Ponder substitute with the Crum interpretation. 

Motion: Dr. Fred. P. Brooks, Jr. moved that under Section I, the Division of 
lealth and Welfare of The Board of Global Ministries be enlarged to include one 
Person elected by and from the residents of the Methodist Retirement Home and 
hat in Section II, The Board of Trustees of the Methodist Retirement Home be 
hlarged so as to include in each class one person elected by and from the residents 
f the Methodist Retirement Home. Grant accepted this motion as a part of the 
eport. 

Question: E.F. Smith asked a question concerning the interpretation of ethnic 



154 North Carolina Annual Conference 

groups in the Restructuring Report as pertaining to our Conference. Grant 
responded, "We are following the action of the General Conference and the 
Discipline as closely as possible." The Chair gave the approximate ethnic makeup of 
our Conference. John Meares pointed out that the ethnic guidelines were 
recommendations and not inflexible rules. 

Information: H.L. Watson raised searching questions regarding information 
concerning continuing Higher Education and the clustering of appropriate divisions 
and committees under the appropriate board. N.W. Grant responded to each 
question. 

Motion: A.F. Fisher moved "that divisions have the right to make final appeal] 
to the Council on Ministries and the Council on Finance and Administration where 
the division is in conflict with the decision of the board." The motion was accepted 
by Grant as a part of the report. 

J. W. Lineberger and J. T. Maides asked questions. Grant responded. 

Previous Question: W.A. Seawell moved the previous question. The Progran 
Council report and the document on restructuring was adopted unanimously. 
Bishop Cannon praised the work of the Conference in their swiftness and 
appropriate promptness of action on the matter of restructuring. Particular praise 
was given to Grant for his leadership and ability to clarify and delineate structure 
Grant thanked the boards and agencies for their understanding and their 
harmonious cooperation during the past quadrennium which had made this work 
possible. 

Lake Junaluska: Edgar H. Neese, Jr., Superintendent of the Lake Junaluska 
Assembly and a member of the Western North Carolina Conference, was presented 
by Bishop Cannon. He spoke to the Conference concerning the unusual success of 
the Southeastern Jurisdiction and the Jurisdictional Council. He cited tha 
Jurisdictional approach as keeping us from being provential as individual 
Conferences. The role of the Lake Junaluska Assembly as a place for leadership to 
come together and share ideas was stressed as one of our most valuable resources.

Rev. Dwight A. Petty was born on March 5, 1889, in Chatham County, son of Isaa 
Newton and Catherine Brown Petty. At an early age his family moved to Durham whicl 
became his home town. 

He was married to Miss Pearl Griffin of Durham oi| • 
October 1, 1918. Two sons were born of this marriage 
They are Burke L. Petty and Bernard G. Petty. Both ar 
living with their mother in Rose Hill. 

Rev. Petty was graduated from Trinity College in 19 li 

and in December the same year joined the North Carolin 

Conference, where he served well and efficiently for forty 

two and a half years. While busy serving the churche 

Rev. Petty felt a need of higher education, and went t( 

Yale Divinity School, where he received his B.D. degre 

in 1927. While studying at Yale he served as pastor of 

Methodist Church at Wallingford, Conn. 

?>k During his ministry in the North Carolina Conference

^m J I He served the following charges: Bahama Circuit 

Burlington Circuit, Piedmont Circuit at East Rockingham 

Clark Street, Rocky Mount; Williamston, Swepsonville 

Halifax, Erwin, Stantonsburg, and Rose Hill. 

With Rev. Petty, faith and works went hand in hand. He gave his unbounded energy 
to work for Christ's kingdom, and his zeal never faltered. Every charge he served wa: 
left improved, spiritually as well as physically. Not only the people of the Methodis 
Church but all in the community found a friend in him. His sermons reflected his scholarlj 
mind and his deep and sincere communication with his heavenly Father and were preachec 
with conviction that he was speaking God's words. 

The happiness he spread along his way left a monument of love in the hearts of eacl" 
one who knew him. His humility, sincerity and brotherly love brought happiness and chee; 
to all. The smile on his face, and his cheery greeting evidenced the trust and happiness 
the life within. 

Whenever friends meet and speak of Mr. Petty, it will be with appreciation of his won- 
derful spirit.

le words of one of his favorite scripture selections, the Twenty-third Psalm of David: 

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the 
still waters. 

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his 
name's sake. 

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear 
no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. 

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou 
anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 

Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I 
will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. 

Amen and Amen.

216 North Carolina Annual Conference 

CHARLES DENVER HICKS, JR. 
1949 - 1971 

Charles Denver Hicks, Jr. was born to Charles and Margaret Hicks on December 23 
1949, in Wayne County. He was graduated from Charles B. Aycock High School, Pikeville P 
North Carolina, in June of 1968. Upon graduating from high school he enrolled in Moun J 1 
Olive Junior College, where he became a Dean's List stu 
dent, receiving an A.S. degree in 1970. At the time of hi 
death, Charles was a rising senior at Adantic Christiai 
College. He was married to the former Donna Lancaster 
and from this marriage they had one daughter, Juditr, 
Ann. 

The life span of Charles Denver Hicks, Jr. was no 

long, but his contribution to life while he was a part of 

was significant. During his early years he was not nurturec 

in the church. It was through his wife, Donna, durin 

ji their courtship, that he first started attending Sunday 

^^^L ^ School and Church at Mount Carmel United Methodis 

«| ||fL H^^^. Church. Through this experience he became more an 

BL Mt. ■ more interested in die Christian life. His new interest 

j^k K <H the church led him to join Mount Carmel United Meth 

K m mi 1 odist Church, and he involved himself in many ways 

Hi I « the life of the church. 

HI ■ Even though he joined the church and entered intc 

many of its activities, he felt himself being called 
more significant manner. This searching culminated in a heartwarming experience one j 111 
Sunday in which he gave himself totally to Jesus Christ. In his application for License tc * 
Preach, Charles wrote about this call in this manner: "Then one Sunday, I gave my life to 
Christ. I was saved by his grace. Things were never the same after that. Now I had a Ufe | 
of meaning and fulfillment. I realized the things that God had done for me and I also 
realized how little I had done for Him." 

Charles' "heartwarming" experience was followed shortly by his call to the ministry 
In June of 1969, he was given a student appointment at Elm Street United Methodist' I 
Church, in Goldsboro. His ministry in this church was rich and meaningful. His people! Jl 
loved him and his family. After two years at Elm Street, he was assigned to the South 
Smithfield Charge, but was there only two months before his untimely death. 

Charles' death came about noon on July 23, 1971, in a small farm pond near Smith-' d 
field. Again involved with his young people, he had gone fishing with two of the boys 
from one of the churches on the Charge. The small boat they were using capsized. The 
two boys were able to make their way to shore, but Charles could not swim, and in his 
panic he drowned. The tragic accident ended the promising life of a young clergyman. 

It was my happy privilege to grant Charles a License to Preach, to participate in his 
marriage to Donna, and to be his District Superintendent. It was my sad responsibility, :It 
along with his pastor, J. Hillary Bryant, to conduct his funeral at the Mount Carmel United 
Methodist Church, and to accompany his body to its place of burial in the Pikeville Ceme- 
tery. 

Throughout these brief years, Charles Hicks never seemed discouraged or disheartened 
He always had a big smile and a warm heart. He was vibrant, filled with a deep sense of 
mission, always willing to stand and affirm it. Here was a man who had less than three 
years in the ministry, but whose contribution cannot be measured in time. For, you see, 
he was a minister for Jesus Christ and for the brief period of his ministry, he wore th« 
mantle with distinction, preserving the tradition of which he was a part.

JOHN FRANKLIN CASEY 
1914 - 1971 

John Franklin Casey was one of those rare spirits who reminds us of the words of Jesus 

om the Sermon on the Mount: "Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God." 

John exemplified in a remarkable way the qualities of humility and love, "the fruit of 

the Spirit," as Paul called them. It could be said of him 

maaam^ammm what was said of an Old Testament saint long ago: "And 

Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took 

him." 

When John was sick in bed, unable to preach, a min- 
ister friend of his and mine said to me: "John is a greater 
blessing to his people lying sick in the parsonage than 
most of us are preaching every Sunday in the pulpit.' 
During the Conference year of 1970-71, much of the 
time he was sick, and yet I understand that he led his dis- 
trict in the number of people won to Christ. 

His good wife, Miriam who cared for him so lovingly 
"in sickness and in health," wrote to me of him: "In the 
thirteen years he was permitted to serve his Lord as a 
pastor in the church, he suffered much physical pain but 
never once did he complain. Brother Wade," Miriam con- 
tinued, "he was a humble man, filled with love for his 
fellow man, and he loved the Lord." 

Born in Stonewall, N. C, Aug. 8, 1914, John graduated 
om Stonewall High School in 1934. In his early youth he was a member of the Free Will 
aptist Church, the church of his parents, but later became a Methodist. He gave his life 
Christ at twelve years of age while doing janitorial work in the Stonewall Methodist 
hurch. In October of 1954, at the age of forty, he declared for the first time, "I want to 
each." In 1958, he resigned his Civil Service work at Cherry Point, and accepted a pas- 
ral appointment to the Midway-Bethlehem Charge. In order to strengthen his ministry, 
'en at the age of forty-four, he dared to enter Louisburg College, from which he gradu- 
ed in the spring of 1961. In addition he attended the Pastors' School at Duke Divinity 
;hool for four summers. He received his Local Preacher's License in 1957, his Deacon's 
rders in 1963, and his Elder's Orders in 1967. 

While serving the Midway-Bethlehern Charge a new parsonage was built and furnished 
id paid for. His second appointment was the Vanceboro Charge, where he preached to 
ch of the diree churches on that Charge every Sunday. The Epworth Church built a Fel- 
wship Hall and named it the Casey Fellowship Hall. In 1970, he was appointed to the 
nyrna Charge which he served until sickness forced him to retire. 

John died with cancer at Pitt Memorial Hospital, October 27, 1971. A fitting memorial 
rvice was held at Trinity United Methodist Church and his body was laid to rest in the 
eenleaf Memorial Park in New Bern, N. C. 

John is survived by his wife, Miriam Matthews Casey; three children, eight grandchil- 
en, and two sisters. 

There is no finer way to close this memoir than to quote these words of his dear wife 
iriam: "John put Christ at the head of his life and he lived to bring honor and glory to 
Master. He lived for Christ and now he lives in Christ."

ROBERT LEROY JEROME 
1901 - 1971 

Robert Leroy Jerome, son of Conder Parson and Flora Gray Jerome, was born in Gate; if 
ville, North Carolina, September 26, 1901. He died in Southern Pines, North Carolini 
December 3, 1971, following the collision of his car and a truck during a snow storm. 

Funeral services were conducted in Page Memori; 
United Methodist Church, Aberdeen, of which he ha 
been pastor since June, 1969, by Dr. Joyce V. Earl; 
superintendent of the Sanford District, the Reverend Ve 
gil E. Queen of Southern Pines United Methodist Church f 
and Don Roberts, a student pastor, of Duke Universit* 1 
Divinity School. From Aberdeen his body was taken 1 
Smithiield, North Carolina, for burial. Graveside servici :' u 
were conducted by the Reverend Vergil E. Queen an 
and the Reverend F. Owen Fitzgerald, Jr., pastor of Cei 
tenary United Methodist Church, Smithfield, where Rof 
ert and his wife served four years prior to their going 
Aberdeen, and where they had purchased a house for the 
retirement. 

Robert Jerome was well equipped in every way for 1 

work to which God had called him, as a good minister < 

the Lord Jesus Christ. His education was extensive an 

thorough. In 1926, he received an A.B. degree from Dul 

University, after being graduated Magna Cum Laude, an 

also elected to Phi Beta Kappa, a national scholastic fraternity. In 1929 he received B 

B.D. degree from Duke University Divinity School, and in 1932 the S.T.M. degree froi 

Union Theological Seminary, New York City. 

In his outstanding ministry, he had a most capable, charming, cooperative and lovir 
helpmate, the former Miss Jean Porter of Franklin, North Carolina, to whom he was ma: 
ried in 1935. To this union two lovely and talented children were born: a son, Robe 
Lyle, and a daughter, Jean Gray. 

Robert is survived by his wife, Mrs. Jean Porter Jerome; a son, Lyle Jerome of Holh 
wood, Fla.; daughter, Mrs. Frank H. Avent, and two grandchildren of Florence, S. C; foi 
sisters, Mrs. E. S. Bowers of Jackson; Mrs. Gladys J. Herring and Mrs. Robert C. Rap; b 
both of Thomasville; and Mrs. W. P. Holt, Jr., of Erwin, and one brother, J. T. Jerome, ( » 
Raleigh. Robert had the high privilege of being born and reared in a Methodist parsonag 
His father, the Reverend C. P. Jerome, served effectively in the Methodist ministry for 4 
years. Robert not only grew up in the intellectual and spiritual atmosphere of a Methodi 
minister's home, with the love and guidance of deeply spiritual and dedicated parents, hi 
also had the unique experience of being appointed to his first charge in 1925, the san 
year his father retired, and to the same charge from which his father retired — Elm Stree 
iPikeville. Thus, he and his father together gave 91 consecutive years of service to Chri 
and the Methodist Church as good ministers. Other charges he served in the North Can 
lina Conference are: Webb Avenue, Burlington; Enfield-Whitakers; Trinity, Wilmingtoi 
Hayes Barton, Raleigh; Centenary, New Bern; First Church, Elizabeth City; First Churcl 
Roanoke Rapids; superintendent of the Elizabeth City District; Centenary, Smithfield, ai 
Page Memorial, Aberdeen. 

During these years as pastor and district superintendent, he also served the church aul 
his Lord in many other capacities through the various agencies of the church — as a meiil 
ber of many of the major boards and committees of the Conference, as a trustee of Nort 
Carolina Wesleyan College, and as a delegate to the Jurisdictional Conference in 1964. 
every post of duty, he served faithfully and effectively, with complete dedication and wi 
the love and respect of both the laity and the clergy. 

It has been my privilege, pleasure and good fortune to know and be closely associate 
with my good friend, Robert Jerome, for more than 45 years. During all these years J 
always proved to be a man of high integrity, genuine sincerity, loyal devotion, strong faith 
and deep spiritual insight. He was a good preacher, a compassionate pastor, an efficie'! 
administrator, a devoted husband, a loving father, a helpful citizen and a true friend. H 
knew, loved and served the Lord with joy and gladness, and above all was faithful to I 



Journal of Proceedings 219 

id. He fought a good fight; he kept the faith, and he has finished his course in this world. 
Master said, "Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life." Robert 
faithful even until death. I am sure the Great Master hat, awarded him the crown of 

e which he so richly deserves. 

"Servant of God, well done! Thy glorious warfare's past; 
The battle's fought, the race is won, and thou art crowned at last." 

(Charles Wesley) 

We shall all miss Robert very much, but let us not mourn too deeply. Rather, let us 
ye thanks to God for our brother minister and his good work, for our joy and fellowship 
th him through the years, and especially for God's wonderful provision for all of his faith- 
1 children. For a faithful Christian like Robert, death is not defeat; it is victory. It is not 
5 end of life; it is the beginning of a fuller and more wonderful life. He is not dead, only 
nsferred to the Father's House of many mansions. As the song-writer says so well: 

"We cannot think of them as dead who walk with us no more 
Along this path of life we tread; they have but gone before. 
The Father's house is mansioned fair; beyond our vision dim 
All souls are His and here or there, are living unto Him. 
And still their silent ministries within our heart have place, 
As on earth they walked with us and met us face to face. 
Ours are they by an ownership not time nor death can free; 
For God has given to love to keep its own eternally." 

(Frank L. Hosmer)

JOHN FRANKLIN McEACHIN 

1892 - 1972 

John F. McEachin exemplified qualities that marked him as a good and spiritual neigl 
bor to all and as a person who stood above the crowd. One of his neighbors said she ha 
never known a man in Hoke County who influenced as many people's lives for good 
Reverend McEachin and she doubts that there will ev» 
be another to take his place in her lifetime. 

John was born in Blue Spring Township, North Cart 
lina, on September 16, 1892, of Needham and Magg 
McEachin. After spending his childhood and youth i 
farm with ten other brothers and sisters, he met and ma 
ried the late Mary Helen Davis. From this union carr 
eleven lovely children. This beautiful union came to a 
end after fifty-three years of marriage, on June 10, 1961 
when his loving wife passed away. 

John McEachin's life was his great ministry. He prt 
pared for the ministry by attending seminary school 
Greensboro and by having great faith in the Lord Jesu 1 
He is remembered by those who knew and loved him nd 
because he preached great sermons or because he was i 
great leader of men, but because he lived a beautiful 
good and inspiring life, and because he influenced so mai\ 
people in so many ways. 

He served and worked faithfully at Hoffman and Mil 
ers, and the churches on the Red Springs Circuit which included Millers, St. Peters and I 
Marks. For over twenty years he worked and toiled with the Millers congregation. Till 
consistent work with one church caused him to have numerous friends and much respe 
in the area. Among his other activities were included much work in his Lodge, the NAAC f- 
and a member of the Hoke County School Board. 

Death came to this faithful soldier of the cross on January 18, 1972, at Duke Hospit 
in Durham. Funeral services were conducted in Laurinburg, January 22, 1972, with tl 
Reverends S. L. Townsend, G. S. Eubank, O. M. Graham, W. F. Elliott, and J. M. M 
Callum participating. Inteiment took place in Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale, New York I 
Those who mourn his passing are four devoted daughters and two sons : Jerry Jont

WHEN LIFE IS DONE 

I'd like to think when life is done 

That I had filled a needed post, 

That here and there I'd paid my fare 

With more than idle talk and boast; 

That I had taken gifts divine, 

The breath of life and manhood fine, 

And tried to use them now and then 

In service for my fellowman. _ Jerry Tqnes

WALTER LUTHER DAWSON, JR. 
1900 - 1972 

The Reverend Walter Dawson, Jr. was bom February 14, 1900, at Statesville, North 
rolina. He attended high school at Rutherfordton, North Carolina, Asbury College at 
ilmore, Kentucky, and Trinity College. His father, Rev. W. L. Dawson, Sr., was a Meth- 

odist minister. He exerted a great influence upon his young 

son by his strong convictions and godly life. Brother Daw- 
son entered the ministry while a very young man; in fact, 
he was the youngest pastor in the Western North Carolina 
Conference during his first appointment. When this ap- 
pointment was made Walter went to the home of his girl 
friend, Miss Ruth Clegg, who was the daughter of a 
Methodist minister. They were married and moved into 
the parsonage to begin his work, fulfilling the call of God 
upon his life to preach the gospel. 
j^r^ ^H Brother Dawson moved to the North Carolina Confer- 

^^^ ence and served pastorates at New Bern, Spring Hope, 
Grifton, Swan Quarter, Columbia, Roberdel, Bobbins, and 
the Caledonia Charge. 

Brother Dawson was a devout man with deep convic- 
tions, an able minister of the gospel, a very forceful preach- 
er who received well the attention of his hearers. Having 
served over a wide area ranging from the mountains to 
the sea coast, Brother Dawson acquired a great host of 
ends all of whom he loved dearly and of whom he often spoke. 

It was my privilege to have Brother Dawson attend the Johns Church after his retire- 
;nt. He was an inspiration to me, and I relied heavily upon him for advice. 
; I made many visits to the home of Walter and Ruth, serving as Buth's pastor, and was 
pays received in a most gracious manner. 

i Bev. Dawson passed away at Bennettsville, South Carolina on February 3, 1972. His 
lieral was conducted at McDougald Funeral Home in Laurinburg by George Davis and 
rmit Wheeler. He was laid to rest in Green Hill Cemetery in Greensboro, by Buth's side, 
p preceded him in death six years ago. 
They are survived by four wonderful children: Walter L. Dawson III of Summerville, 
C; Mrs. Ed Brooks, of Burlington, N. C; Mrs. A. D. Sylvester of Beaumont, Texas., 
Mrs. Arthur Davis of Laurinburg, N. C. 

One of Brother Dawson's favorite hymns was "Amazing Grace." The music to this 
nn was played on the organ at his funeral. 

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, 
That saved a wretch like me; 
I once was lost, but now I'm found, 
Was blind but now I see.

PAt the age of 20, she met a young minister serving hi 
second pastoral appointment at the Methodist Church i 
Gadsden. They were married on June 22, 1892. To thJ 
union were born three children: Jayne, born in 1893 i 
Gadsden who later became Mrs. John S. Holland of Ne* 
Bern, N. C. (deceased); Rudi H., born in 1894 in Pe 
aluma, California, now Mrs. L. Dow Pender of Raleigl 
N. C, and Euclid H., Jr., born in 1900 in Elmira, Caiifo; 
nia, and who now makes his home in Paradise, Califorw 
Following the death of her husband Mrs. McWhortt 
(lovingly called "Granny Mack") made her home wit 
her daughter, Mrs. Pender, until her deadi at the age c 
99 years, two months and eight days, on July 19, 1971. 
She was laid to rest in Oakwood Cemetery in Raleigl 
beside her late husband, on July 20, 1971. The funer, 
service was conducted from the chapel of Brown-Wynn 
Funeral Home, by the Rev. John Ormond, assistant paste 
of Edenton Street United Methodist Church, and the ReV 
Lester A. Tilley, minister of visitation. 

In the latter part of 1893, the McWhorters were called to serve in California. Havin 
accepted the call, they made the move with their four-month-old daughter and they live 
in California ten pleasant and rewarding years, serving four pastorates, the city of Alamed 
being their last. 

Because of the serious illness of Mrs. McWhorter's father in 1902, they decided t 
move back to the South. There was no appointment open in Alabama so Mr. McWhorte 
accepted a call from the Methodist Church in Southport in North Carolina. He served th 
church for eighteen months and was then moved to Maxton where he served three year 
as pastor and three years as president of Maxton College. 

After Maxton, the McWhorters served pastorates in Tarboro, Morehead City, Ne\ 
Bern, Chapel Hill, Aberdeen, Wilson, Lumberton, Enfield, and Weldon. Upon leavin 
Weldon they returned to Tarboro where they lived one year at the end of which they re 
turned to their home in Raleigh where thev lived for six years until the death of Mr. Mc 
Whorter in 1944. 

Mrs. McWhorter was a wonderful helpmate and a devoted wife. She loved and mad 
a pleasant home for her family and entertained in a gracious manner. Her friends wer 
always welcome. She made manv friends all through the years as a preacher'. 1 - wife, but he 
greatest pleasure was to give of her help and strength freely to those who were sick am 
needy and were in distress. 

During the latter years of her life Mrs. McWhorter was remarkably active, mental! 
alert and keenly interested in community and world affairs. To the end of her life she live 
abundantly, cheerfully, and bravely. 

Mrs. McWhorter is survived by one son, one daughter, five grandchildren, ten great 
grandchildren, and six great-great-grandchildren. 

Verily, verily I say unto you, he that heareth my word and believeth on Him that 
sent me, hath everlasting life and shall not come into condemnation but is passed 
from death unto life (St. John 5:24).

MRS. JULIA WARD WHEDBEE 
1886 - 1971 

Julia Ward Whedbee, bom June 29, 1886, in Onslow County, North Carolina, died 

;ptember 24, 1971, at North Carolina Sanatorium in McCain, North Carolina. The service 

as held in the chapel of Andrews Mortuary, Wilmington, North Carolina, under the direc- 
tion of the Rev. Rufus Stark, pastor of Grace United 
Methodist Church in Wilmington, and burial took place 
in Oakdale Cemetery in the family plot. 

Julia Wheedbee, along with her beloved husband, 
James Carson Whedbee, who had been a Methodist min- 
ister for two years at the time of their marriage, served 
southeastern North Carolina for forty-two years. At the 
death of Mr. Whedbee, Julia Whedbee lived with her 
son, James Carson, Jr., and his family for twenty years 
until his tragic death, after which she moved to South 
Carolina to spend most of her remaining life with her 
daughter, Mrs. John W. Gaddy. During this time the 
Methodist church was very close to her heart, for she 
taught the Women's Bible Class at Grace Church for sev- 
eral years and was given a life membership pin in the 
Women's Society by the women members of Grace Church 
in Wilmington. Mrs. Whedbee was an avid Bible reader 
up until the time her eyesight began to fail, and even then 
when she felt the need she would ask to have specific pas- 

ges read to her by members of the family. She was faithful to the cause of the Methodist 

hurch as long as she was physically able to attend the services. 
She is survived by her daughter, Mrs. John W. Gaddy, of Sumter, South Carolina; five 

anddaughters: Mrs. Ferdinand Allsbrook of Atlanta, Georgia; Mrs. Gordon H. Ellis, Jr., 
Wilmington, N. C; Mrs. Hal Floyd of Camden, N. J., Mrs. Randolph Tisdale of Co- 

mbia, S. C; and Mrs. William R. Lane, Jr. of Wilmington, N. C, and nine great-grand- 

lildren.

MRS. ELVA STRICKLAND LOWE 
1890 - 1972 



Elva Ann Strickland was born July 2, 1890, in Telfair County, near Fitzgerald, Geor- 
3. She attended elementary and secondary school in her native state of Georgia. Her 
liege training and more formal education was under the guidnce of the Church of the 
Brethren, or Quakers, at Guilford College. 

While a student at Guilford College, it seems that the 
hand of Almighty God began to take a more active part 
in her life. While there she met a young Methodist minis- 
ter by the name of William G. Lowe. 

Several years later, on December 28, 1920, they were 
united in the sacred bonds of holy matrimony and lived 
together and served God until they were separated by her 
death on January 9, 1972. 

Elva Lowe truly traveled with Billy Lowe during his 
years of service. She added her charm and graced the par- 
sonages at Henderson, Battleboro, and Whitakers, Plym- 
outh, Aurora, Swan Quarter, Winfall, Trenton, Shallotte, 
Council, Pink Hill, Scott Hill and Oriental. 

To this parsonage family our loving Father added the 

_ ibdessings of three children — two by birth and one by 

^^ adoption. The children's names are Jane Blair Hollowell 

and Elizabeth Ann Faulkner. The adopted son is Thomas 

Edward Lowe. 




224 North Carolina Annual Conference 

Because of a physical condition, it became necessary for her husband to retire befoi. 
their years of active service as minister and wife were accomplished. However, for a spa 
of thirty-nine years, our Conference had the devoted service of these two Christians. 

Many are the individuals and families who have been blessed by the presence of thi 
soldier of the Cross. Many are the adults today who are enjoying the fruits of the Christiai 
life because Elva Lowe came into their lives, teaching them to know Jesus as their Saviou 
when they were small children. 

She was an individual of rare spirit who learned, as did Paul, "to be content in what 
ever state she found herself." Her pleasure in life was to serve God with the resources a 
hand. She was always busy planting the seeds of faith, hope, beauty and love in the live 
of all with whom she came in contact. It was her pleasure to teach Sunday School classe! 
in most of the churches she and her husband served. She had her part in WSCS activitie 
and used her voice in every choir. 

I suppose the following quotation sums up all that could be said about Mrs. Lowe am 
the life she lived. The paragraph is taken from a letter from Mrs. Jane Hollowell to tblj 
writer: 

"There are so many fine traits about my mother, I hardly know how to ex- 
press them. What I loved most about my mother was her devotion to God, family 
and friends. Her gentle and cheerful spirit, the purity of life, and all the finer 
things of life. She loved music and would start singing any time she felt like it. 
One night while she was sleeping in my room with me, I was awakened by her ; 
humming one of her favorite hymns." 

In 1950 Brother Lowe, Elva and Tommy returned to Aurora where they had serve 
many years before. Here they rented a small home in which to live. However, one of tJb 
former members who had always loved the Methodist Church and had a deep, abidin 
appreciation for Methodist preachers and their families, left a small house to the Auroi 
Methodist Church. This house was to be used by retired preachers who had served thi 
appointment. 

The Lowes were able to spend many happy years together there among friends 
neighbors who had shared former years with them. Because of Brother Lowe's physic) 
condition, they were received into the care of the Methodist Betirement Home in Durhan 
North Carolina, where they continued to express God's faithful love and grace to all the 
associates, friends, neighbors, and those they chanced to meet. 

Failing health and the weight of years confined Sister Lowe to the infirmary and God 
Angel of Death came for her January 9, 1972. 

The funeral service was held in Aurora, North Carolina on January 11th. The minister 
were Dr. Joseph F. Coble, Superintendent of the Methodist Betirement Home, and Bevf 
end John W. Yount, pastor in charge of the Aurora appointment. 

Thus, Almighty God claimed for Himself and for all eternity one who had lived , 
"beautiful fife" for Him. 

It is most fitting and proper that this memorial be closed with the words of a hyn>i 
Mrs. Lowe cherished so much: 

It singeth low in every heart, 

We hear it each and all; 

A song of those who answer not, 

However we may call. 

They throng the silence of the breast; 

We see them as of yore, 

The kind, the true, the brave, the sweet, 

Who walk with us no more. 

'Tis hard to take the burden up, 

When these have laid it down; 

They brightened all the joy of life, 

They softened every frown. 

But, oh, 'tis good to think of them 

When we are troubled sore; 

Thanks be to God that such have been, 

Though they are here no more! 



Journal of Proceedings 225 



More home-like seems the vast unknown 

Since they have entered there; 

To follow them were not so hard. 

Wherever they may fare. 

They cannot be where God is not, 

On any sea or shore; 

Whate'er betides, Thy love abides, 

Our God, for evermore.

MRS. MARTHA EMMA GRIGSBY FLETCHER 

1887 - 1972 

Mrs. Maynard O. Fletcher (Martha Emma Grigsby) was born in Scott County, Va., 
tober 31, 1887. She was married to Dr. Maynard O. Fletcher on April 18, 1906. She 
jsed away January 17, 1972, in the Beaufort County Hospital. She was buried in Oak- 
dale Cemetery on Wednesday, January 19, 1972. Dr. 
- BKSEi ■ ■ Fletcher preceded her in death June 11, 1966. They had 

one daughter, Mrs. Nola Mae Ervin, of Washington, N. C. 
Dr. and Mrs. Fletcher came to Washington in Septem- 
ber, 1914, when he became president of the Washington 
Collegiate Institute. Under their leadership this school 
provided an educational opportunity to hundreds of boys 
and girls who otherwise would have been denied this op- 
portunity. They left their impact upon the educational, 
cultural, and spiritual life of all whom they met. 

Mrs. Fletcher truly provided the balance and the sus- 
taining force in this magnificent endeavor. She was a real 
mother to the hundreds of students who knew her. The 
Washington Daily News honored her as Mother of the 
Year in 1968. 

To the members of the North Carolina Conference, she 
was always a sincere and charming hostess. She had that 
unseen capacity to lift their spirits and to send them away 
just a little closer to God than they had been before. In 
lb she was a radiant Christian. 

I Mrs. Fletcher lived for others. She was an active member of the First United Methodist 
kirch. She was a past president of the WSCS. She was a member of the O. Henry Book 
I and the Washington Park Garden Club. The doors to her heart and to her home were 
m to everyone. Perhaps the greatest tribute that could be paid to Mrs. Fletcher would 

fo say "she was a gracious lady."

MRS. MARIE HOOKER GRANT 

1893 - 1972 






Marie Hooker Grant, widow of the late Dr. Thomas McMillan Grant, died on Januai 
21, 1972, in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. 

Mrs. Grant was born in Greene County, North Carolina, July 20, 1893, and was ma 
ried to Dr. Grant, her pastor, in Hookerton, North Can 
lina, in 1919. Dr. and Mrs. Grant served pastorates i 
Hertford, Lumberton, New Bern (District Superintendent 
Greenville, Elizabeth City (District Superintendent), an 
Rocky Mount, North Carolina (District Superintendei 
and pastor). Dr. Grant died while serving as pastor of t> 
First Methodist Church in Rocky Mount in Decembe 
1952. Mrs. Grant continued to live in Rocky Mount unt 
the time of her death. 

It was during their pastorate in Rocky Mount that n? 
wife and I had the rare privilege and good fortune « 
starting our ministry with Dr. and Mrs. Grant and the 
family, I as Dr. Grant's assistant, and my wife as a ne 
bride. This wonderful couple took us in and provided i 
with the emotional support and guidance which is so in 
portant in the lives of young people. We practically live 
in their home because we felt accepted and loved b 
them. By this time their own children (three wonderfi 
girls) had grown up and gone on to make fine contribi 
tions to the people of their communities and to the state of North Carolina. This was n« 
surprising in view of the warmth and love which these girls had experienced from the 
parents. Dr. and Mrs. Grant did not treat us as subordinates, as children, nor as young peop 
who need to do a lot of learning and growing up. Instead, they treated us as persons, ; 
peers, as fellow workers in God's kingdom. This attitude on their part gave us great €* 
couragement. As we now look back on our years in the ministry we are extremely grater 
that we had such a wonderful couple to model our lives after and we are sure that oi 
own home and ministry have been shaped and greatly influenced by our association an 
deep friendship with Marie and Tom Grant. 

Marie Grant was our ideal of a wife and mother. She greatly complemented her hu 
band, yet she was a strong person in her own right. She was quiet, charming, very fem 
nine, and richly endowed with a spirit of gentleness, love and kindness thai reached ox, 
to everyone she met. 

In a simple and profound ceremony which befitted the quiet strength in which si 
lived, Marie Grant was laid to rest from the First United Methodist Church in Rocli 
Mount. She was buried beside her husband, Dr. Thomas Grant, in Pine View Cemetei 
of that city.

MRS. MARY COWELL GLASS 

1889 - 1972 

Mrs. Mary Cowell Glass was born March 17, 1889, in the town of Bayboro, North 
irolina, the daughter of John F. Cowell and Sally Baxter Cowell. She attended the local 
hool and upon completion of her studies entered Woman's College, Richmond, Virginia, 
and graduated with honors. She later taught in the Wash- 
ington, North Carolina public schools. 

On December 28, 1922, Mary Cowell married Heniy 
Iverson Glass and, thereby, began a more active life of 
service in the Lord's vineyard. Together Dr. and Mrs. 
Glass shared the challenges, opportunities, and joys of the 
itinerant ministry of the Methodist Church. Dr. Glass de- 
parted this life December 23, 1968. 

As the wife of a Methodist minister, Mrs Glass served 
both church and community well. Her community acitvi- 
ties included service with the Red Cross, the Girl Scout 
Executive Council, the Executive Committee of the Young 
Women's Christian Association and regent of Caswell- 
Nash Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, 
Raleigh, North Carolina. 

In her church activities Mrs. Glass served as superin- 
tendent of the Children's Division of the Board of Edu- 
cation in the North Carolina Conference, as teacher of 
adult classes, as member of die executive committee of the 
nference Board of Missions and Church Extension, as member of the Long-Range Plan- 
lg Committee of Methodist Homes, as trustee of Pfeiffsr College, as member of the ex- 
itive committee of the Methodist College Foundation, as president of the Women's 
ciety of Christian Service of the North Carolina Conference, and as a delegate ot both 
! General Conference and the Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference of the Methodist 
urch. Truly, she served her Lord through her church. 

Mary Glass joined her husband in the land of eternal day February 22, 1972. Funeral 
vices were conducted for her in the First United Methodist Church, Washington, North 
rolina, Februry 26, 1972, by the Reverend Horace S. Garris and the Reverend Howard 
McLamb. It is unique that her memorial service was held in the same church where in 
14 Henry Iverson Glass was ordained a deacon and admitted into the ministry of the 
Jthodist Church, where she married Dr. Glass in 1922, and where they served as the 
itoral family from 1928-1932. Her life touched many of us, and we are the better for it. 
In 1956 Mary Cowell Glass, as president of the Conference Women's Society of Chris- 
l Service, addressed a meeting of that Conference body. The theme of her message was 
aoking Backward — Thinking Forward." She gave a resume of the work for the quad- 
nium just ended, and then she showed something of her vision as it concerned the fu- 
e. Her "forward thinking" in 1956 must be our "forward thinking" in this day. She 
Dte: 

"As we enter a new quadrennium we face unbelievable opportunities and problems . . . 
^inquency, both parental and youthful, is already a problem and must claim the atten- 
i of Christian women. In the days ahead we shall need a new measure of adventurous 
h, some such passion of sacrifice as has made men and women brave and faithful . . . 
s shall need to stand by our visions, to turn and meet the quick winds that are ushering 
a new era. In the Pitti Palace, Florence, Italy, there is a design of an airplane by the 
jat painter, Leonardo Da Vinci. On the margin, written in his own handwriting, is the 
Jription: 'There shall be wings.' There is a heartening thought for us in these days in 
:. There shall be wings, not only physical wings, but wings of loyalty, faith, courage; 
igs of peace, wings to fight prejudice, fear and hatred; wings to fight intolerance and 
iplacency and injustice; wings of religion, prayer and song; wings of love, sympathy and 
cem . . . 'They who wait on the Lord shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall 
't and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.' " 

"For all the saints, who from their labors rest, 

Who Thee by faith before the world confessed, 
Thy name, O Jesus, be forever blest. 

Alleluia! Alleluia" -Horace S. Garris

MRS. MARY McPHATTER MONROE 

1892 - 1972 

Mrs. Mary McPhatter Monroe, daughter of the late Henry Clay McPhatter and the lal 
Mrs. Mary Eliza McLean McPhatter, was born on January 31, 1892, in Hoke County, Nort 
Carolina, and died on March 8, 1972, at Southeastern General Hospital in Lumbertoi 
North Carolina. Funeral services were held on Saturda} 
March 11, 1972, at Rhyne Memorial United Methodi 
Church, Red Springs, with the Reverend Preston C. Jone 
Sr., officiating, assisted by the Reverend W. F. Elliol 
Interment was in Community Rest Cemetery, Red Spring 
North Carolina. 

Her husband, the late Reverend John Edward Monro 
Sr., a local preacher in the Red Springs area, preceded 
in death. To that union ten children were born. 

She joined Lillie's Chapel Presbyterian Church at £ 
early age and was a faithful member until she moved hi 
membership to Mt. Zion Methodist Church, Red Spring 
North Carolina. After becoming a resident of the Re 
Springs township, she became an active member of Rhyr 
Memorial United Methodist Church where she served 
a faithful Sunday school teacher. She joined the Eastei 
Star Lodge at Mt. Zion some years ago and later becan 
a member of die Red Springs Gleaners No. 382, and n 
mained a member in good standing until her death. 
When I came to Red Springs to serve the Rhyne Memorial charge I fell in love with i 
"beautiful lady, Mrs. Mary Bell. She was a great person to know and she was always will 
ing to share her knowledge and wisdom. Her "yes" to God and her "Amen" will be miss4 
very much in Rhyne as well as in the community of Red Springs. 

A leader and servant in the church and community for many years, she was called i 
waitress in the Household of Faith. It seems that she had caught a vision of the Cross . A 
and she knew that as a result of that vision, it would lead to a physical death, but I feii 
that she held fast to the promise of God,"I will be with you always . . ." 

My last visit with Mrs. Monroe was in the hospital. She was very weak — she couldri 
even speak, but she reached out and caught my hand. We had a short prayer, and wh(J 
we finished the meditation, she continually praised God ... as if to say, "all the days 4 
my appointed time, I'll wait . . ." This reminded me of the song, "If I Couldn't Say J 
Word, I'd Just Wave My Hand." As with jPaul, she had quoted so many times in Sund; 
school: "This thorn in the flesh keeps bothering me, but I know God's grace is sufficient 
Finally, the end had come for a dear and wonderful lady. ". . . For I am now reac 
to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand; I have fought a good fight, I hav, 
kept the faith. Henceforth, there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which tli 
Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me at that day." 

Rest now from your labor, Mrs. Monroe. It wasn't always easy for vou here; you h; 
some hard times, but God's goodness and mercy followed you. You kept the faith. V 
give God the praise for having given her to us for a while. We give her back to Him, I 
Maker. Amen.

BLANCHE JOHNSON UNDERWOOD 

1883 - 1972 

On April 17, 1972, Lola Blanche Johnson Underwood died in Chatham Memorial Hos- 
iL Siler City, N. C, at the ripe age of 88 years. She was born October 31, 1883, in 
xion, South Carolina, a daughter of Thomas Hinson Johnson and Mary Davis Johnson. 
Her funeral was conducted at Hope United Methodist 
Church in Bonlee, North Carolina, by her pastor, Rev. W. 
O. Connor, and Rev. W. L. Maness. She was buried in 
Hope Church Cemetery by the side of her beloved hus- 
band, Rev. William James Underwood, who died January 
2, 1968. 

"Brother" and "Sister" Underwood, as they were af- 
fectionately known, were married at Marion, South Caro- 
line, January 10, 1906. To this happy union one son and 
two daughters were born: Alton C. Underwood, La Jolla, 
California; Mrs. Mary Clark, Bonlee, N. C, with whom 
Mrs. Underwood made her home after the death of Mr. 
Underwood; and Mrs. Julia Perry, Roseboro, N. C. 

Rev. Wade Goldston, in writing the obituary of Brother 
Underwood, had diis to say of Mrs. Underwood: "She was 
a partner with her husband in his life and ministry in a 
depth of understanding and love seldom matched on this 
earth. She still lives in Bonlee." 

When the parsonage of the Bonlee Methodist Charge 

(dedicated, Sunday, March 3, 1964, the study was dedicated in honor of "Rev. and Mrs. 
J. Underwood" with these appropriate remarks: "The Bonlee Methodist Charge is 
fctly privileged to have a minister of the gospel and his wife to retire in Bonlee. We 
I especially grateful to have such a dedicated couple who have spent their lives in ser- 
m to others." 

iTheir first appointment was to Shallotte, March 24, 1919. This and many other charges 
1/ served long and well until their retirement from the Robbins Circuit, my home charge, 
1.953. Those eight years of loving service to my people and others there are greatly ap- 

(piated. 
Mrs. Underwood was truly a Christian woman. She fought the good fight of faith and 
Jed her course with joy. She is now happy in her eternal rest, having received the com- 
dation, "Well done, good and faithful servant; enter thou into the joy of thy Lord."

244 North Carolina Annual Conference 

GROUP A: AGENCY ANNUAL REPORTS FOR 1971-1972 



THE COMMISSION ON ARCHIVES AND HISTORY 

One of the more memorable statements from the Celebration of the Bicentennial cl, 
Francis Asbury's Arrival in America, September 3-5, 1971, was the caution: "If we forget thos | 
who came before us, we deserve to be forgotten by those who come after us." 

A. The Commission on Archives and History during the conference year just ending, h£|j_ 
continued to obtain local church histories within the North Carolina Annual Conference. Thesi 
histories can best tell the story of "those who came before us" and provide the Commission 
with valuable information about the "history of North Carolina Methodism." Especially do wj^ 
need the history of local Indian and Black United Methodist churches. As the local history 
updated, all ministers and local church historians are requested to send a copy to the historian 
of the Conference. 

B. The 1971-72 year saw some significant historical observances in which the Conferenr 
commission members shared. The aforementioned Asbury Bicentennial, chaired by ov 
commission chairman, drew eighty of the more than five hundred delegates to the national 
observance. A total of 1 ,800 persons shared in the Labor Day weekend activities at which ou 
own Bishop William R. Cannon was a major speaker. Bishop Cannon spoke on the topicu 
"Francis Asbury: Prophetic Itinerant and Designer of American Methodism." A number o 
Commission delegates attended from throughout the conference. 

The Commission chairman was asked to represent the Southeastern Jurisdiction to speak a 
the October observance of Asbury's Arrival at Old St. George's in Philadelphia and John Street 
Church in New York City. 

C. In the late fall of 1971, planning began on the observance of the "Bicentennial o 
Methodism in North Carolina." Invitations were issued the Western North Carolina Confereno 
Commission to share in joint sponsorship. 

Other Methodist denominations were also asked to share in the state-wide observance 
Plans were drawn for a day-long celebration at Currituck Courthouse on September 28 
1972 - the 200th anniversary of Joseph Pilmore's first sermon in North Carolina. Dr. Fredericl 
Maser, executive secretary of the World Methodist Historical Society, of Philadelphia and edito 
of Joseph Pilmore's Journal will give the Keynote Address. The major afternoon speaker willbi 
Bishop Herbert Bell Shaw of Wilmington, a member of the executive committee of the Work 
Methodist Council. The Rev. C. Franklin Grill of Scotland Neck was elected as Prograni 
Chairman of this planning committe. 

D. The Commission continues to sponsor the worship services monthly at Whitaker's Chapel; 
one of our sixteen national shrines. We have also supported the efforts of the Washington 
County Historical Society in the renovation of historic Rehoboth Church which was officiallj 
opened during the year. 

E. The Commission endorsed the project of the Conference Pictorial Directory. The 1971-7/ 
Directory - the first for the conference since the pictures of the ministers of the 1881 
Conference - should be periodically updated. It should be a valuable pictorial reference no* 
only for these days but for historical purposes. 

F. The Chairman should like publicly to tnank the Conference and the Commission members 
for their interest and cooperation during the quadrennium. We believe that the Conference 
Commission has made many contributions during the past four years. Our past has beer 
remembered but we have also made history in our own time! 

The Raleigh Area is a vital part of the "cradle of American Methodist history." 

William K. Quick, Chairman 
C. Franklin Grill, Secretary

THE COMMITTEE ON CHURCH ARCHITECTURE 

The Committee on Church Architecture, in cooperation with the several agencies of the 
inual Conference, has assisted in giving special emphasis to thorough study and programming 
a prerequisite to architectural designing. "Translating Program into Space" was the theme of 
meeting December 14, 1971, in which Mr. Dennis B. Nicholson, architect, made the 
ssentation. 

The Annual Joint Meeting on March 6, 1972, gave added emphasis to the significance of 
arough planning prior to construction. The Reverend James L. Doom, minister and architect, 
ired in a presentation of church architecture's challenge to serve the church effectively. 

In addition to resource materials, professional counseling services can be made available 
ough the Committee on Church Architecture in cooperation with the District 
perintendent. 

The Committee calls to your attention the services of the Conference Review Committee, 
'rich serves to evaluate preliminary architectural plans and prepare reports for local churches, 
trict Boards of Church Location and Building, the Board of Missions, etc. 

As a servant, architecture will continue to play a significant role in the total ministry of the 
fristian Church as it provides space for worship, nurture, fellowship and service. 

An additional emphasis is that of utilization of existing buildings. It is important that 
vestment be made in only the space needed to minister to the needs of the people. 

Carver's Creek Church, located in Bladen County, was one of the two churches selected for 
;ognition under the Randolph E. DuMont Design Program. Mr. Frank Ballard, the architect, 
1 the church in a project of refurbishing the 100-year-old sanctuary designed by Sir 
iristopher Wren, and in the erection of a new educational building. 

Meetings scheduled are Tuesday, December 5, 1972, and Monday, March 5, 1973.

THE BOARD OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL CONCERNS 

The Board of Christian Social Concerns furnished scholarships for approximately a dozerj 
persons at the Southeastern Jurisdictional conference on Christian Social Concerns at Lake] 
Junaluska in July, 1971. The president of the board served as a leader at this enterprise. 

The board has worked in close cooperation with the Commission on Christian Soch-j 
Action Ministries of the North Carolina Council of Churches in planning the Church ana. 
Community seminar held in cooperation with North Carolina State University in March and irij 
helping plan a series of "engagement-reflection" seminars on welfare and poverty in Nortfy 
Carolina. 

Members of the board participated in a task force to study day-care needs in North 
Carolina and the role of United Methodist Churches in day care. A report was made to annual 
conference with several recommendations and a statement of United Methodist standards for 
day care has been prepared. 

In September, the vice president of the World Peace Division led an ecumenical, interracial, 
and inter-generational United Nations - Washington Study tour. This widened horizons and 
brought people in our conference into direct contact with agencies of the church in their work 
on national and international levels. 

The board promoted the observance of World Order Sunday in October and "Trick or 
Treat" for UNICEF. The board also was a sponsor of the peace education booth at the North 
Carolina State Fair. 

The board was and continues to be active in the State Council for Social Legislation. The 
president of the board served as chairman of the council's finance committee during the current 
year, and a member of our board serves the council as chairman of its legislative study 
committee. 

The board has worked closely with the Council on Youth Ministry and has assisted in the 
establishment of a youth legislative affairs project. The youth leader in this project has served 
on the executive committee of our board, represented our board at the State Council for Social 
Legislation, and attended the General Conference in Atlanta. 

The board, last year, called for the establishment of a conference Commission on Religion 
and Race, and at the time of the establishment of the commission, the board sponsored a 
"Consultation on Racism" for conference leaders and the members of the commission in 
cooperation with the General Commission on Religion and Race. 

The board has worked closely with the Conference Commission on Religion and Race and 
sponsored a workshop on racism for the commission. 

The board cooperated in the promotion of Race Relations Day, and even though some 
progress has been realized the past two years, we are distressed at the lack of our commitment 
to the goals of the Race Relations offering. 

The board expressed appreciation to those who have served faithfully the past eight years 
and who will thus rotate off the board. We express our gratitude to the Rev. Charles M. Smith, 
our vice president of the Division of Peace and World Order for organizing and leading our U. 
N. - Washington Study Tour, and to the Conference staff, especially John M. Meares, for 
effective service in promoting the conference program.

opportunities for our pastors. The Conference Committee on Continuing Education is 

armly appreciative of this appointment. 

The Committee on Continuing Education has approved grants for aiding pastors to attend 
>urses at Scarritt and at Yale University. 

During the coming Conference Year, the Committee has projected district courses to be

[ho have not completed requirements for Conference membership. Other courses will be 
jveloped on the post Master of Divinity level. In the former category will be courses in 
|jlizabeth City and Jacksonville. For post Master of Divinity study, courses will be held in 
ayetteville and Durham. Times have to projected on a weekly basis between September 18 to 
ecember 11, 1972, and between January 8, and February 26, 1973. The particular subjects 
rill be determined by a poll of pastors in the several areas.

248 North Carolina Annual Conference 

A REPORT FROM 

THE DIRECTOR OF THE COURSE OF STUDY SCHOOL 

DUKE UNIVERSITY 

Our theme for this year is, "Mostly New In 1972." First of all we have a new Divinity 
School dean - Thomas A. Langford. Second, we have a new Course of Study Schoo^ 
director - Paul A. Mickey. Third, we have a new building. A new dean, a new director, and nev^ 
faculties - along with a new slate of student officers - underscores "newness" for the Coursf„. 
of Study School in 1972, in this our 25th year. 

We are restyling some of our teaching methods. For example, in the License to Preack ; 
course three faculty members will be involved in team teaching. Each faculty member wil^ 
conduct individual sessions but will also participate in morning workshop sessions. 

Formal and required class work will be confined to the mornings. This will allow student 
and faculty free afternoons. Workshops in preaching, public speaking, private tutoring, anr^ 
conversations with the faculty will be available. Some of these activities will be sponsored b}( ( 
faculty; others by students. 

There is great interest among the students and faculty to develop a workshop 
methodology. The heart of the workshop is the case study method. Here students bring ir < 
actual problems they encounter. Faculty and students work together on these specific u 
problems. There is another trend: the decrease in the number and the amount of advancec )f 
assignments. We believe we can accomplish more, realistically, by concentrating or, 
team -teaching and the workshop approach during the School itself. This would move awajj, 
from extended and protracted assignments throughout the entire year. 

A word about enrollment. We are most encouraged. As of June 7, our enrollment was 143 

Billy Cuthrell, a member of the North Carolina Conference, is also one of the studeni 
officers for 1972. If any members of the Conference, including members of the Board ol 
Ministry, have questions about the Course of Study please see Billy Cuthrell or the undersigned.^ 

Paul Mickey, Director 
THE COMMITTEE ON DISTRICT CONFERENCE RECORDS 

The committee has examined the district records turned in to us and declares them to be in] 
order. We recommend that the most current records be placed at the front of the binder foil 
easy access and that records more than four years old be carefully preserved in a separate place 
so as to keep the current book from becoming too cumbersome. 

John H. White, Chairman 
James C. P. Brown, Secretary 



REPORTS OF THE DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENTS 
A COMPOSITE REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENCY 

C. H. Mercer, Secretary to the Cabinet 

At our last Annual Conference the eleven Districts presented for the first time a composi 
report rather than following the usual pattern of each of the eleven District Superintendents) 
speaking for the District to which he was assigned. The enthusiastic response to that reporti 
indicated the delegates agreed 100% with this decision of the District Superintendents. (Inj 
other words, there was the usual response to decisions made by District Superintendents.) 

Encouraged by your response we have decided again to present one report. Dr. Graham; 
Eubank, our highly esteemed and articulate colleague, who is president of the Cabinet, was; 
scheduled to be our spokesman. We deeply regret that because of illness he is confined to ai 
hospital in Fayetteville and he is disappointed that he cannot give this report and that he must, 
after many years in the ministry, miss for the first time a session of the Annual Conference. 



Journal of Proceedings 249 

This report cannot provide accurate and detailed statistical information. This is true for 
vo reasons. The first one may be difficult to comprehend, but as I studied the reports from 
e District Superintendents provided me last night, one report had a notation at the bottom of 
e page which read, "This report is not complete due to the fact that we did not receive a 
port from one of the pastors." Let me assure you this was not the New Bern District report. I 
ceived a report from each pastor, but I will admit four long-distance telephone calls were 
tcessary. The second reason our information is incomplete is the fact that some pastors arrived 
Iday with pockets bulging with checks and final reports. This information we will get later in 
le week from our Conference Statistician. But let me share enough information to indicate 
me important trends and accomplishments. 

We have baptized almost 2500 infants during the Church Year. More than 9000 new 
Sembers have been received with 3600 of them coming into our churches on profession of 
ith. After reporting for two consecutive years a net loss in membership within our 
mference, we can now report a net gain of about 500 members for this year. 
j We have also made progress in the area of Christian stewardship. Again we are thrilled to 
port an increase in giving to the "Single Figure." Not only did the amount of our 
kmmitment increase but the recent report from our Conference Treasurer indicated the 
srcentage paid on the "Single Figure" had increased 4.1% over that paid one year ago. The 
'crease in commitments to the "Single Figure" alone for next year is about $250,000. 
; It now appears, Bishop Cannon, that the Churches of our Conference will contribute 
most $100,000 to the Ministerial Education Fund. All indications are this amount will be 
ten greater next year. 

: Much has been done to improve our physical facilities. We have either erected or are in the 
locess of erecting: 

9 new Sanctuaries 

13 new Educational Buildings 

7 new parsonages 

25 new units now being planned. 
Se Churches of the Durham District alone have spent $1,000,000 on new buildings, renova- 
[ans and indebtedness. 

All special days have been widely observed, and based upon the fine response of our 
<opie, we must conclude they were wisley observed. Many interesting and exciting activities 
we been occurring in each of our Districts. 

! In the Elizabetn City District the Circus Tent Ministry at Kitty Hawk continues to flourish 
d expand. Plans are now underway for the Showboat Ministry designed especially for older 
lulls. Camp sites in Currituck County have regular worship services during the summer 
bnths. In the Wilmington District the Cape Fear Area Resort Ministries include Youpon, 
irolina, and Wrightsville Beaches. The Bogue Banks Resort Ministries, within the New Bern 
istrict, continue to serve the thousands of summer visitors, but are also providing a helpful 
Snistry to the seamen at the Morehead City Port. 

Many training programs have been planned by the Districts. In the Goldsboro District a 
wardship program was provided with special emphasis on training churchmen to hold 
ery-Member-Vistitation Programs and to come to a better understanding of the 
ingle-Figure Asking." In the Raleigh District four Every-Member- Visitation Workshops 
:re held and ten Sub-District meetings were held to present the new budget askings for 
'72-73. As the editor of this report, I can observe that these meetings must have been very 
lpful as the greatest percentage of increase in the "Single Figure" for the new year comes 
>m the Raleigh District. A one -day Workshop on Family Counseling was held for the Pastors 
the New Bern District. In Rocky Mount a District Workshop was held for Pastors on 
Ministry Through Small Groups," the purpose of which was to help small groups function 
3re effectively. The Sanford, Wilmington, and Burlington Districts had District Retreats for 
'nisters and a training opportunity for lay workers. Within the Fayetteville District, the 
jbeson County Church and Community Center continues a special ministry. Major support is 
ing given this work from agencies of the Conference and the National Board of Missions. A 
■w Rural Church and Community Program has been started in Harnett County. Several Work 
•mps will be held in the Pamlico Parish in the New Bern District during the summer months, 
'oups of young people and their adult counselors from several states, and from within our 
mference, will be spending 10 days each working to improve the homes of some of the 



250 North Carolina Annual Conference 

elderly citizens and disadvantaged families. The home owner will provide the materials f 
repair and the work groups will provide free labor. 

Many are familiar with the story related by Mr. Broderick in his book, Historical Church 
in the United States. Some years ago in Swanquarter, high water lifted The Methodist Chun 
from its foundation, moved it without damage to a nearby lot which the Church members h; 
tried without success to purchase as a new site for the Church. However, the owner would ill 
sell. Immediately after the high water moved the Church building, he rushed to the courthou 1 
and transferred the ownership of the land to the Church saying, "I had plans for that lot, bi 
the Lord had plans for it too." As Methodists of the North Carolina Conference, we mu 
acknowledge we have had our own plans, but God had plans for us, too. We are grateful th. 
through us His work has been done. 

Your District Superintendents express appreciation to the capable and dedicated paste 
and laymen by whom God's plan has been followed. We also express deep affection and since 
gratitude for the brotherly understanding of our Father in the Faith, our Bishop, for I 
devoted and expert leadership. He has provided for us clear direction toward meaningful got 
and has shared the inspiration and encouragement we needed to achieve. 

BURLINGTON DISTRICT 

Edgar B. Fisher, Superintendent

,d likewise there will be an increase of more than $20,000 in Single Figure acceptances, 
lirty-five charges increased their Single- Figure acceptances for the next Conference year; 
reive remained the same (but seven of these charges already were paying as much or more 
an the so-called "Fair Share" or "Base Apportionment"). 

The district superintendent is most grateful to all who have helped to make this year 
ccessful and looks to the future with optimism. 



DURHAM DISTRICT 

Chancie D. Barclift, Superintendent 

The report of the 54 charges, consisting of 74 churches, of the Durham District for the 
)71-72 conference year reveals that progress was made in practically all areas of the work,

We have gratitude for the leadership of the Good Lord and the guidance of His Spirit in til 
work accomplished. We undertake the work of a new conference year with renewed zeal an) 
confidence. 

ELIZABETH CITY DISTRICT 

G. R. McKenzie, Superintendent 

This year has seen the very fine cooperation of both pastors and lay persons in all the ares: 
of the work of our Lord's Church. Our report is but a summary; yet it could not be writte 
without giving credit to all those who make it possible. 

Our churches report 279 persons received on profession of faith and 203 received b 
certificate of church membership. There were 184 baptisms during the year. It is with optimisi 
that we report a net gain in membership of 136. 

The district response to an increase in the Single Figure was not as good as we had hopec 
but our churches did accept a 4.46% increase, or $6,510. We still have much to accompli* 
since we have accepted only 86.89% of our Asking. It is our prayer that more of our people ca 1 
catch the vision of increased giving for others. The churches have accepted $8,500 o 
Ministerial Education and this is an increase over the current year. 

Our people continue to provide increased pastoral support, having raised salaries in exces 
of $19,000 for the coming year. There is no more meaningful way for the churches t 
commend the fine work of their dedicated pastors than through increased salary support. 

There is continuing emphasis on improving the physical condition of church buildings an ; 
parsonages. Sharon Church, Currituck Charge, completed an educational unit this year. Th 1 
Perquimans Charge has built a new parsonage during the year. In addition, educational units ar 
in the planning stages at Wanchese and at Mt. Hermon on the Creswell Charge. City Road ha^ 
voted to undertake major repair of both church and parsonage. $53,000 has been reported a 1 
paid on parsonages and $60,100 on renovation and repair of church buildings. 

The District Program Council has continued to function in a fine manner; among th 
activities it has successfully promoted has been a fine pastor's retreat with Dr. Thomas A 
Langford as leader, a pilot project for the Consultation Service for Churches of Sma], 
Membership at Pilmoor Memorial church in Currituck, and a Vacation Church School Institute 

The people of the area continue to boast of the fine work being accomplished through thj 
Circus Tent Ministry at Kitty Hawk where each year between 40,000 and 50,000 person! 
attend its varied activities. A new thrust is being planned for older adults to be known as Thj 
Showboat Ministry which, hopefully, can begin in the not-too-distant future. As this "ne\| 
evangelism" continues to expand, we pray God's richest blessing upon all that is accomplished! 

We have had a good year in the Elizabeth City District; there have been some defeats buj 
we can report many more victories, and with this in mind, a grateful thank you is in order as wj 
look forward to an even greater year in the service of our Lord and His Church. 

FAYETTEVILLE DISTRICT 

Graham S. Eubank, Superintendent 

This is the final report for the Fayetteville District as constituted for the past eight years, a 
which time the total membership reported was 18,757. The total membership reported in 197,' 
was 21,011. The membership at the close of 1971-72 shows an approximate loss of 20<j 
members. Of the losses for the year 1972, 585 were by Charge Conference action. Received on 



Journal of Proceedings 253 

ofession of Faith were approximately 500 and otherwise approximately 600. The total losses 
sre approximately 1,200. This is not intended to be a criticism of any minister or church 
lich has taken seriously a disciplinary requirement to submit a membership audit report 
nually at the Charge Conference. There may have been some errors, but certainly not 
entional ones. I believe that it is good for the charge to have accurate membership reports, 
d it is a false assumption to believe statistical figures when membership rolls have been 
elessly kept and neglected for so long. We should, at present, have an accurate report on 
:al church memberships as of the end of 1971-72. 

ppreciate very much the wonderful relationship which I have been fortunate in having with 
t ministers and churches of this district during the year. They have been wonderful to 
s - most considerate, most cooperative and helpful, with the exception of three or four. In 

king my final report for the churches in Robeson County, I am very happy to report that 
ery church included in the 26 charges in the county paid its Single Figure in full, and the 
jority of other items. Actually the only county in this district of four counties in which a 
arge did not pay in full was Cumberland County, where I live. 

;ould write a long report expressing my wonderful experiences with the work in Robeson 
>unty. I could write quite a bit about my relationship with Black ministers and churches 
lich I cherish as one of the highlights of my life. My relationships with the Indian ministers 
d churches have also been most enriching and deeply appreciated, and let me say that I do not 
elude any White minister or church in that county because they, too, have shown real 
urchmanship. We have had our problems and our controversies, but we have not forsaken our 
>rd nor His Church in these new relations and new problems which have been created only 
cause, finally, we began to face the Gospel Truth and tried to do something about the 
ichings of Christ and the New Testament as people of God. I was not given a choice regarding 
keeping or losing of Robeson County as my responsibility. The decision was made by 
hers. I was not consulted about the loss or keeping of that county. If I had been given a 
oice, despite the fact that there are 26 charges and almost half the work of the district in that 
unty, I would have chosen to have kept it. I shall miss my friends. I pray God's continuing 

ssing upon them, and they have my continuing loyalty, love, and support. 
lo not mean to neglect Hoke, Cumberland, and Harnett in this report, but since this is written 
;er the decision has been made, I must express these experiences which I will not have an 
portunity to state in any future reports. 
lere has not been much new building in the district during the year. There has been finishing 

of some projects and planning of new projects. The major actual building progress has been 
Rhyne Memorial in Red Springs. They are completely remodeling and repairing their church, 
t this is not yet completed. Additions and repairs have also been made at Mt. Olive-Smith 
large (both churches), New Zion, Beauty Spot, Piney Grove, St. George, Miller's, St. Peter's, 
lem, Walls Chapel, Mt. Zion, Collins Chapel, and Philadelphus. The Task Force of the Board 

Missions has recommended a new church building for Salem and Philadelphus. Woodside 
lurch on the Mamers Charge is getting ready to renovate its classrooms and fellowship hall, 
le Task Force has also recommended parsonages for Indian churches which do not have 
jsonages: Prospect, Pleasant Grove, Branch Street-Philadelphus, and a new parsonage for 
mbroke: First with the old parsonage, which is inadequate, being developed for use in the 
furch program and campus ministry. The church in Rowland has begun construction on a new 
flowship hall. The church raised during the year the majority of the total cost. 
Single-Figure acceptances of the Fair-Share Apportionment, the following have accepted 
Share; some far beyond the Fair-Share percentage:

254 North Carolina Annual Conference 

We commend these churches on their financial records and stewardship responsibility] 
accepted. With the exception of a very small number of churches, all others accepted increase, 
and have agreed to accept the full amount of Fair-Share Apportionment asked for 1 972-7 1 
within the three-year period included in the Annual Conference Resolution of 1971. Th] 
district was second in amount paid to the Ministerial Educational Fund and led in a number oi 
other specials including the Fund for Reconciliation, United Methodist Youth Fund, Methodisj 
Student Day, Worldwide Communion Sunday, and One Great Hour of Sharing. The district waj 
third in Conference Advance Specials. These speak well for the stewardship commitment of th) 
churches of the district. 

The total salaries received by pastors for last year were $475,000, only $6,000 less than th: 
total salaries of the Raleigh District, which was number one. This information was provided b;j 
the Bishop and his committee on planning the Twelfth District. The Fayetteville District's ne^ 
boundaries include the churches of Sampson County, replacing the churches of Robesoj 
County. Sampson County includes 11 pastoral charges and 21 churches. We now have a total I 
48 pastoral charges in the district of Cumberland, Harnett, Hoke and Sampson Counties. Thi 
old part of the Fayetteville District, including the District Superintendent, pastors, and laymerj 
extend a welcome without any reservations and with a deep sense of appreciation and totf, 
commitment in our Christian unity, cooperation, and support. 

Before closing my report, I must commend the special programs in Robeson County includin;j 
the Robeson County Church and Community Center, community developer in the Prosper 
Parrish, Black and Indian Caucus funded by the General Commission Religion and Race, and^ 
special program that was begun by Hay Street Church in Fayetteville, which is now ai 
ecumenical program. The newest program in the district is the Harnett County Rural 
Community Program with a church and community worker assigned last October. 
This is not a statistical report, but an expression of who we are, our commitments, and a sincer, 
desire to be the Church of God in our time. 

GOLDSBORO DISTRICT 

Albert F. Fisher, Superintendent 

The year 1971-72 has been an exciting and productive year for the Goldsboro Distric 
Many meaningful experiences have been observed throughout the District. We have witnessej 
the maturing of the District Program Council concept as the programming agency for th: 
District. This Council has been responsible for the major planning for the District for the yea. 
The work of the Program Council has certainly generated a better spirit of cooperation an ( 
unity throughout the District. 

Of all that has happened during the year, nothing compares to the licensing of five people 
to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. At District Conference, three young men were licensed I 
preach: David Atwood, James McCullen, and Kelly Wilson, III. Two of them are now servirr 
student appointments, and after Annual Conference, the third will begin serving a studeri 
appointment. Since District Conference, two others have been licensed by the District Conj 
mittee on Ministerial Qualifications: Mrs. Gladys Williford and R. G. Gurley. Both of these wij 
assume pastoral appointments at Annual Conference. Mrs. Williford will become a Probationai, 
Member of the Annual Conference this year, and will become the first woman to reach th ( 
status in the Annual Conference. 

The Goldsboro District has had another excellent year financially. We have paid 100 pi, 
cent of the Single-Figure Asking for the Conference year 1971-72. Again, the pastors an 
laymen of the District are to be commended for their stewardship and commitment to trj 
connectional system. The District also accepted 96.8 per cent of the requested askings - a- 
increase over the previous year. 

The churches were not without concern for their pastors' salaries. The total increase ft' 
the District was just over 5 per cent, which nearly reached the suggested goal of 5.5 per ceil 
over the salaries paid the previous year. 

The District is to be commended for its evangelistic outreach for the year. There was a ml 
gain reported by the pastors of 110 members, with 1 15 infants having been baptized. 

There were two major building programs completed during the year. Mt. Moriah Unite^ 
Methodist Church, on the Hopewell-Mt. Moriah Charge, built a new Educational Building an, 
renovated the Sanctuary at a total cost of $33,500. This is a very lovely and complete facilit;' 



Journal of Proceeding? 255 

e other major construction program was a new Educational Building and renovation ot tne 

isting Educational Building by Centenary United Methodist Church, Smithfield. The total 

st of the project was $28U,256. This plant is one of the best planned and most functional 

ucational Buildings that we have in the Conference. 

One parsonage has been completed during the year. The Clinton Circuit sold the old 

rsonage and built a new one just outside Clinton. The parsonage will be occupied for the first 

le by the pastor assigned to the Charge at the 1972 Annual Conference. 

While these were the major programs, the other churches in the District were not idle. The 

Lirches spent $153,193 in renovation and repairs. This work continues to upgrade the 

ilities of the District in both church buildings and parsonages. 

During the year, the District Parsonage has received some much-needed landscaping. The 
>rk has not been completed, but the major protion has been finished. We continue to have a 
r ely home that is a credit to the Goldsboro District, whose interest and concern for the 
strict Parsonage family is reflected in the parsonage. 

A summary report by trie District superintendent would be incomplete without a word of 
preciation for the work of the men who have served the churches in the District. Never have 
;y been called upon but that the response was immediate and energetic. After having served 

three years now as superintendent, I greatly appreciate the kind of unselfish service that 
nfies the pastors of the United Methodist Church. As their superintendent, I, along with the 
arches of the District, have been blessed by their ministry. 

A summary report would likewise be incomplete without deep appreciation expressed to the 
ited Methodist people of the Goldsboro District. They, too, have responded in a most 
lerous manner to me and to my requests of them. For their commitment, I am grateful. 
This report must not indicate that the work here is finished - really, we have just begun. I 
ly hope that we have caught a glimpse of the mission to which we have been called. If we 
re caught a vision, then the year ahead will again be as the last - a year of victories in Christ's 
ne.

have been done. We believe we are set for more and greater things to be done in the year ahea* 

NEW BERN DISTRICT 
Charles H. Mercer, Superintendent 

The loyal and competent services of the pastors and laymen of the New Bern District haj 
been rewarded with many results. Some can be recorded through statistical information, b ! 
the most significant part of these efforts is recorded in the lives of people whose faith has beij 
kindled, cultivated, and expressed as a result of Our Lord's Ministry through The Church. 

During the year, 107 infants have been baptized. We have received 265 persons on professk 
of faith and 497 by transfer. 

The Beech Grove Church has completed a new educational building at a cost of $50,000. T!" 
Richlands Church has begun an educational building which will cost $170,000. 

The Clarks Church and the Harkers Island Church are planning new buildings with archited 
already at work. 

Several meaningful training opportunities have been provided. The Board of the Lai* 
sponsored a training program for certified lay speakers which was well attended. The Distrr" 
Program Council sponsored a one-day Workshop on Family Counseling for Pastors under V 
leadership of Dr. David Knox, Professor at E.C.U., a Pastors' Confirmation Lab in the New Bej 
Sub-District, and Lay Officers' Training Workshops in each Sub-District. 

Through the work in the Pamlico Parish we are discovering new approaches to a mo J 
meaningful ministry through cooperative efforts and new understandings. Also, the Bog ! 
Banks Resort Ministry continues as a joint effort of many denominations to serve the summ' 
tourists and the seamen using the Morehead City Port. 

The response to the needs served through the Single-Figure Asking has been the best it 1 
been in several years. This is true of payments for the year closing and committments alrea 
made for the new Church Year. 

God has truly used the commitment and talents of the pastors and laymen of the New Be 
District. Praise be to God! 

RALEIGH DISTRICT 
J. W. Page, Superintendent 



The Conference year 1971 - 1972 has been a good year for the Raleigh District; t 
sixty-five active and dedicated ministers and the 28,918 devoted laymen have made t: 
following report possible. I am deeply grateful to our ministers and our laymen for thi, 
cooperation in every phase of the work of the Church: in a very real sense, this is their repo, 
1. Membership and Evangelism: 567 members were received on profession of faith; 1368 we 
received by transfer for a total net gain of 480. There is increasing devotion in the area 
Evangelism on the part of both clergy and laity, and this continuing evangelistic emphasis is 
omen of better things to come. 



Journal of Proceedings 257 

Finances: The Single-Figure Acceptance for the Raleigh District for this year was 
74,517.00 and the amount paid to date is $371,233.00, making a percentage paid of 99.1%. 
e Churches of the Raleigh District have accepted for the Single Figure for 1972-1973 the 
ount of $440,000.00; this represents a $66,000.00 increased acceptance over the previous 
tr. In addition, the salaries of the ministers have been raised by more than five per cent. Only 
ee Charges failed to pay in full their Single-Figure Acceptance. 

During October and November four sub-district Every-Member- Visitation Workshops were 
d in strategic areas of the district; these were led by O. L. Hathaway, K. L. Braswell and J. 
Page. In January ten sub-district meetings were held in the District to present and to explain 
■■ increased asking for the Single Figure; this increase was made imperative by the action of 

Special Session of the Annual Conference which adopted a Funded Pension Plan for the 
listers of the Conference. Those persons who were involved in the leadership of these 
(-district meetings were: O. L. Hathaway, N. W. Grant, K. L. Braswell, J. Ed Legates, Merritt 
les, Charles McAdams and J. W. Page. The total increase in the Single-Figure Acceptance in 
, Raleigh District is due largely to the information and the inspiration of these sub-district 
etings. For the excellent response of both ministers and laymen I am most thankful. 

Raleigh District Program Council: The entire program in the Raleigh District was planned 
1 projected by the District Program Council. This group met regularly during the year; on 
jy 12, 1972 the group met at Westover United Methodist Church for a day of planning for 

1972-1973 Conference year. Each member of the Program Council had done his homework. 
1 it was a very meaningful day of planning for the work of the Church for the coming year, 
i deep appreciation is expressed to each member of the District Program Council for his part 
planning the work for the Raleigh District for the new year. Because we took the necessary 
le to work and plan, the coordination of the Raleigh District Program with the Conference 
fgram will be greatly facilitated for the coming year. 

Board of the Laity: Under the capable leadership of Dr. J. Ed Legates, Raleigh District Lay 
tder, a significant program of Lay Activities was carried out. One of the great experiences in 
5 area was the District Lay Rally in February held at Memorial Aduitorium. A youth group 
m Burlington, THE NEW DIRECTIONS, gave an excellent program; "it was wild and 
ovy" in a Christian and youthful sort of way, and this did a great deal to bridge both the 
ial and generation gap. To Dr. Legates and to each Lay Leader in the Raleigh District I say, 
hanks, for a job well-done." 

| Miscellaneous: There are many other areas of concern that could be singled out for special 
phasis: United Methodist Women, United Methodist Youth Fellowship, United Methodist 
n, Christian Education, Social Concerns, Religion and Race, Health and Welfare, debt 
I'ment, building improvement, Advance Sepcials, N. C. Christian Advocate, and other special 
fs and causes. To sum it all up, continuing progress is being made in all areas in the Raleigh 
trict, and I am thankful to God for the privilege of working with the ministers and laymen in 
i5 exciting program of our United Methodist Church. 

ROCKY MOUNT DISTRICT 
Paul Carruth, Superintendent 

Brick and mortar, lumber and paint are perhaps the most easily identifiable signs of interest 
i commitment. Our people give evidence of their interest in the church and their 
nmitment to the work of the church in the buildings they construct or acquire. 
The support of the people of the Rocky Mount District for the pastor has been demonstrated 
the continued upgrading of the parsonages. Central air conditioning is becoming a required 
hire of the homes of all our people, and the parsonage is no exception. Two congregations 
it secured new homes for their pastors, these are Weldon, and Winstead of Wilson. Valuable 
iitions have been made to the parsonage at Woodland. 

Construction of the new sanctuary at Scotland Neck is "proceeding, and a new church 
lucture is being built by our Shiloh church of Gaston. Additional classrooms are planned for 
ern church of Milwaukee Charge. The architect of Tabor Church of Hawkins-Tabor has 
twn plans, and a financial campaign has been carried out for the reconstruction of the 
actuary, with the letting of a contract expected within the near future. Remodeling or 
urbishing plans are being developed by New Hope Church of Roanoke, Elm City, and First 
urch, Wilson. 



258 North Carolina Annual Conference 

The development of Christian zeal and a shared life of Christian faith among our peopl 
not so easily identified, but there are encouraging signs. The entire Rocky Mount District J; 
given serious attention to the identification of every person, and the accounting of eve 
member appearing on the membership rolls of our churches. The emphasis has or 
incidentally been to "clean rolls." Basically, the concern has been to mobilize every reside 
Methodist to participate in Christ's redeeming ministry to the world. The churches of 
district added 599 members. A second Confirmation Laboratory for pastors was held in t 
district to upgrade the quality of this work. A large number of the congregations participated 
the study of the COCU Plan of Union, giving evidence of continued ecumenical concei 
Because our churches do much of their work in small groups, a district workshop for paste 
was held to help pastors to help the boards, classes, committees, etc. in their churches to 
their work more effectively. 

The Fund for Reconciliation has assisted a program of community help in Rocky Mount b> 
contribution to Contact. 

The Rocky Mount District is preparing to participate enthusiastically in the progress of o 
Conference in the 1972-1973 Conference Year. 

SANFORD DISTRICT 
Joyce V. Early, Superintendent 

The Sanford District has had another good year for which we are profoundly grateful! T 
morale of the preachers and laymen is at a high peak. The spirit of comradeship and teamwo 
is excellent. Harmony has prevailed at the charge conferences, and a wholesome outlook towa 
the work of Christ's Kingdom has been evident. 
CHRISTIAN NURTURE AND EVANGELISM: 

A total of 929 new members have been received, on a goal of 1,000, with almost half 
these (447) coming by profession of their faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. We ; 
especially pleased to report a net gain of 340 new members in the district, while the net ga 
for the conference was 448. Our pastors baptised 207 infants. A pilot Confirmation Lab w 
held in February with 14 pastors participating. Membership confirmation classes have been he 
and Christian nurture stressed. 

During the year seven pastors and laymen served as consultants in the ministry to sm 
churches. We are very proud of this work for it has brought hopeful help to eight of our weak 
churches. Appreciation is given to the faithful consultants for work well done. An overnig 
spiritual retreat was held for our pastors on November 8, 9, with Dr. Mack B. Stokes 
inspiritual leader. Forty-two of our pastors participated. 
BUILDING PROJECTS: 

Steele Street Church, Sanford, started construction on their long-dreamed-of church hor 
on August 15, 1971, with completion expected in February 1973. This church, re-located 
West Sanford, will cost $1,293,000 when completed, and will be one of the most beautiful ai 
modern churches in the conference. The congregation has voted to change the name to St. Lu 
United Methodist Church when occupied. 

Union Grove Church, Sanford Circuit, is now under construction also. The cost, wh 
completed on July 31, 1972, is expected to be $40,000. This much-needed church is receivr 
aid from the Duke Endowment, the $10 Club, and the Sanford District Fund for neei 
churches. We are very grateful for this aid. 

Buildings Planned: 

Polar Springs: sanctuary remodeling and new class-room building.

isent debt is $14,993.99, 

!i VANCES: The Sanford District has led the conference each month since January in the 
xentage paid on the Single-Figure Acceptances. The district reported to the conference that 
m of the acceptances had been paid on the 1971-72 askings, and $300,858, an increase of 
0,131, or 8.50% has been accepted for 1972-73. The Sanford District exceeded its Fair-Share 

* iota by over $5,000! This was made possible because 30 of the 50 charges reached or 

11 Ceeded their Fair Share for 1972-73! Only four charges failed to accept an increase. 
The district accepted $18,596 of the Ministerial Education Fund on an asking of $20,731, or 
%. Only one charge failed to accept any apportionment. It accepted $838.50 on an 

I aortionment of $1 140 for the Interdenominational Cooperation Fund or 75% 
PASTORS' SALARIES: 

Pastors' salaries have been increased by $26,139 for 1972-73. Only six charges did not 
a-ease their pastor's income. All but four now pay the pastor's Blue Cross-Blue Shield and 
fe Insurance premiums. 

The Lay Rally attendance was the largest ever with 595 present. A lay speakers' training 
ision was held with Charles K. McAdams, leader. Also, an officers' training session was held. 
Bishop William R. Cannon dedicated the Pinebluff parsonage on November 7, 1971. Other 
rsonages in the district have been improved. The new East Rockingham parsonage, one of the 
test in the conference, was completed and occupied by the Rev. and Mrs. O. W. Watson in the 
1 of 1971. At the same time a new Fellowship Hall was completed and occupied. 
The Sanford District has had a tremendous year. It has been a very high privilege for me to 
ve been the district superintendent of such dedicated laymen and pastors for the past two 
ars. 



WILMINGTON DISTRICT 

W. J. Neese, Superintendent 

} I am pleased to present the following brief account of some of the accomplishments of the 
f ited Methodist Church in the Wilmington District. With humble acknowledgement of my 
] lebtedness to the fine pastors and lay persons of the District, I offer my profound gratitude 
all those who have served Christ and his Church with great devotion and have given their 
aperation in the promotion of the program and mission of the church both locally and 
pbally. As Francis Asbury wrote of the Wilmington Methodists in 1810, so I can say today: "I 
d the work of God is going on here." 

Our people are concerned about evangelism. During the past year, 236 have been received by 
ifession of faith. The total received into the churches of the District by all means is 716. 
■• sses by all means number 651. Our net gain of members this year is 65. 
In a year when we advised that government controls would permit only a limited salary 
:rease for each pastor for the coming year the charges of the District have agreed to increase 
s salaries of the pastors by an amount of approximately $28,000 over this year. 
In the face of a Single-Figure Asking of $273,530, the churches of the District have accepted 
:otal of $205,035 of this amount for next year. This means that we have accepted 91.72% of 
r Single-Figure Asking. Our increase over the 1971-72 acceptance is 8.43%. 
The prospect is that a large majority of our churches will pay their Single-Figure acceptance 
full this year, although a few are not likely to do so. 

Buddings dedicated this year include: the parsonage at Chadbourn on October 10, 1971, and 
iloh Church on the Riegelwood-Bolton Charge on May 21, 1972. The Coffeehouse and Beach 
nistry Facilities at Long-Yaupon Beach, sponsored by Ocean View Church, were dedicated 
July 31,1971. .... 

Magnolia Church completed the renovation and redecoration of its sanctuary and held a 
rvice of rededication on May 28, 1972. The interior of the Chadbourn Church also has been 
novated this year. Extensive repairs and improvements have been made on the basement ot 
ntenary Church in Harrells. 



260 North Carolina Annual Conference 

A new parsonage is being erected by the Singletary Church of the Dublin Charge. It snoi 
be completed by early fall. 

Plans are being made for the erection of the following building projects in the near future: 
sanctuary building at Shiloh Church on the Town Creek Charge; and a sanctuary building a 
class rooms at Ocean View, Yaupon Beach. Also plans are underway to remodel the sanctua 1 
at Wallace at an estimated cost of $45,000: pledges totaling $43,095 have been received to da 

In the area of special ministries, a new concern is being shown for our responsibilities on o 
beaches. The Cape Fear Area Resort Ministries -CFARM- has been formed in the District 
promote and coordinate the special ministries at Wrightsville, Carolina, and Long-Yaup* 
Beaches. 

A Methodist Society is being organized in the Greater Wilmington Area to provide a vehi( 
for inter-church cooperation and to coordinate the United Methodist program and mission 
the lower Cape Fear Area. We expect this organization to help us achieve a greater degree 
unity and solidarity as United Methodists. 

We believe our greatest days are ahead, and we pray for God's guidance and power that j 
may more wholeheartedly follow the Lord Jesus Christ. 

THE DUKE ENDOWMENT 

June 1, 1971-May 31,1972 

In cooperation with the local church, district and conference officials, The Duke Endowme

Special emphasis is being given to long-range planning based on research and study th 
encompasses the larger community. Whether the project is the development of a pari* 
structure, the construction of a building, or the establishing of priorities, the prerequisite 
effective planning and programming.

THE CONFERENCE COMMISSION ON ECUMENICAL AFFAIRS 

During the year, the Commission has emphasized a study in the local churches of "A Plan 
Union" in connection with the Consultation on Church Union. 

Two of the officers-Drs. T. A. Collins and C. W. Robbins-led in discussions on "A Plan of 
lion" at the R & R held at Methodist College, Fayetteville, last summer. A number of the 
;mbers of the Commission have participated in local church ecumenical discussions during the 
ar. 

The Commission, in cooperation with Bishop Cannon and Reverend E. R. Porter of the 
ogram Council, conducted a survey of study plans for "A Plan of Union." 

Of 296 forms returned, 263 indicated that the study would be held, with 142 stating they 
juld conduct their studies with other COCU communions. Responses indicate that a good 
oss-section of churches held ecumenical studies in one form or other and that ecumenical 
operation is growing within the bounds of our Conference. 

The Commission commends the Conference for its growing support of the North Carolina 
>uncil of Churches as well as other ecumenical bodies. At a time when the ecumenical 
avement is under attack from various quarters, the United Methodist Church holds firm in its 
mmitment to interchurch and interfaith cooperation. All ecumenical bodies need financial 
pport if they are to oe a vital force in healing the brokenness of our churches and become a 
ong influence in healing a broken, warring world. 

The Commission wishes to commend ministers and laymen in local churches who are 
ploring new ecumenical models and finding more ways of working with other communions at 
e grassroots level. 

The Commission met in March and voted to ask the Conference to reduce its membership 
27, the number of representatives to which the Conference is entitled in the North Carolina 
)uncil of Churches. 



262 North Carolina Annual Conference 

Five from our Conference are related to ecumenical bodies, including Bishop Cannon, whoi 
is Methodist representative to COCU; Dr. Robert E. Cushman, who is a member of the General,; 
Commission on Ecumenical Affairs of the United Methodist Church; Nelson Gibson, Bill Priceij 
and C. W. Robbins, members of the General Assemblies and General Board of the National; 
Council of Churches. Dr. Collins is the past president of the North Carolina Council olj|

Committee on General Church School Ministry 
Christian White, Chairman 
1. Report for 1971-1972 

A. One of the areas in which we sense a great need is that of developing more better-', 
informed churchmen. This process has its beginning in the confirmation classes. We» ; 
have had five confirmation labs for pastors this year to help them better use the fine! 
curriculum we now have. Labs were held in Raleigh, Greenville, Roanoke Rapids, Newj 
Bern, and Rockingham. Fifty-five pastors participated in these five day-labs. 

B. At the Southeastern Jurisdiction Leadership and Laboratory School at Lake 
Junaluska, August 1-13, 1971, we had two persons who completed work for certifica- 
tion as Elementary Laboratory Leaders: The Reverend F. Belton Joyner, Jr. 
(Elementary V-VI) and Mrs. Roberta Scipio (Elementary V-VI). 

C. In the program for "Developing Ministries in Black Churches," there was a veryJ 
helpful Black Youth Church Encounter Workshop held October 1-3, 1971, at Camp! 
Rockfish, which reached fifty youth and adults, laymen, and pastors. Also, five Clust-j 
er Group Council on Ministries Workshops were conducted by Reverend Willard 
Williams, Staff Member, Division of the Local Church, United Methodist Board of; 
Education, Nashville, Tennessee. A committee is now at work gathering information 
on contributions of Blacks to United Methodism in North Carolina to be made avail- 
able to local church groups. 

D. The most important area of work that we developed this year was the "Service to 
Churches of Small Membership." Miss Jennie Youngblood from the General Board of 
Education held three pilot consultation training sessions in our conference. These 
sessions were held at Camp Rockfish November 12-14, 1971; Pilmoor Church, 
Currituck, November 16-18, 1971; and Camp Chestnut Ridge November 19-21. A 
one-day "make-up" session was held in Goldsboro on February 9. As a result of this? 
training, forty-nine consultants are now available to help churches of small member- 
ship to more effectively plan their ministries. At least thirty consultants are already, 
assigned to churches. Some of these have completed their four consultation sessions.; 
with the local congregation. 

E. There were nine Christian Workers' Schools held in our conference this year wifhi 
more than seventy churches taking part. This method of leadership development still! 
has a vital contribution to make to the training enterprise. 

F. Eleven workshops involved more than 175 local church leaders in training sessions of! 
from two to five hours. A wide range of subjects of Christian interest were explored. | 

G. Two laboratory enterprises were conducted: one in the Durham District and one m . 
the Raleigh District. 

H. We commend the Program Council for the appointment of an Interboard Leadership | 
Development Task Force which has already made plans for orientation, training and: 
organization of the new boards and agencies at Methodist College on June 24, 1972. 



Journal of Proceedings 263 

SECTION B 
Committee on Children's Ministry 

E. Clifford Shoaf, Chairman 
Report for 1971-1972 

a. Pilot Project to strengthen the Role of the District Coordinator of Children's 
Ministry Coordinators were encouraged to establish in-depth relationship with two 
local churches to explore the possibilities of ways district coordinators could best 
support local church ministry with children. It was possible to establish such projects 
in four of the districts. 

b. Cadre of New Workers District coordinators were asked to work through the 
ministers of the district to discover capable persons for leadership roles in children's 
ministry. One example of the effectiveness of this effort is the fact that some districts 
had entirely new staffs for Vacation Church School Workshops. 

c. Vacation Church School Workshops Over one thousand persons took part in the 
Vacation Church School Workshops held in all of the eleven districts. More than fifty 
persons did special preparation to serve as leaders in these Workshops. 

d. Support of Camping Ministry In the summer 1971 camping program, 733 elementary 
boys and girls took part in activities at the conference camps. This is an increase of 
twenty per cent. Those who had completed the third grade were eligible for the first 
time and the Council on Children's Ministry evaluated the participation of those 
children as a good procedure. During the camps, special attention was given to 
ecological concerns. 

e. Reaching Children Outside the Church The Council on Children's Ministry prepared 
a resource sheet on reaching children outside the church. This material was sent to 
every local church pastor and to each local church coordinator of children's ministry. 

f. Children's Music Workshop Rather than a conference-wide Workshop, there were 
resources available so districts could have their own Children's Choir Festival. These 
were held in the Burlington, Durham, Raleigh, and Wilmington Districts. Over 300 
persons were involved. 

g. Curriculum Workshops Several districts offered workshops for those who teach in 
the Children's Division. Attention was given to interpreting the philosophy behind 
United Methodist curriculum resources and helps for using the resources. An estimat- 
ed 200 persons took part in the various workshops.

H. Langill Watson, Chairman 
1. Christian Educators Section, Wyatt Brown, Chairman 

A. Report for 1971-1972 

A total of forty-two workers are now serving in our conference. Three of theaj 
are certified Ministers of Education; eleven are Directors of Christian Education; ond 
is an Associate in Christian Education; and twenty-seven are Educational Assistantf] 
Two new workers transferred into our conference from the Holston Conference 
during the past year: Miss Jean Beaty, Associate in Christian Education, is now servim] 
at First Church in Rockingham; and Miss Carol Tignor, Director of Christian Educa 
tion, is serving at Highland Church, Raleigh. 

These workers are vitally concerned about the total life and ministry of thi 
churches they serve. They also assist other churches in the conference by serving ajl 
resource leaders on conference, district, and cluster-group levels. 

We encourage more churches to employ full-time workers in Christian educatiot 
as an effective way of improving their educational ministry. All churches employing 
education workers should support them in their ministiy in every way possible. 

B. Report of Christian Educators Fellowship, North Carolina Conference 

The North Carolina Chapter of the Christian Educators Fellowship has sought il] 
the past and will continue to seek in the future, ways to help congregations under! 
stand the role of Christian educators. The chapter is seeking ways to help the educaH 
implement the objectives of Christian Education wherever he works. 

The Christian Educators Fellowship has tried to develop ways that the Christiar'. 
educator can be used in implementing the conference priorities for 1972-1973. W( 
feel that through the use of the expertise of the Christian educator in the education} 
process, many of the priorities can be met. During the past year, many of tfo 
Christian educators have been leaders in the consultation service for church. :s wit! 
small membership with tremendous results and activities beginning to take placell 
these churches that are so vital to our conference. 

The Christian educator wants to be included as a vital part of the leadership II 
the church. They are volunteering for leadership positions on local, district, anf| 
conference councils so that their commitment to Christ and the Church can be us. 
effectively in reaching persons and filling their needs. The Christian educator wants i 
be concerned about persons ard their real needs. The Christian educator wants to 1 
an enabler, a good listener, a supporter of lay workers, and someone that can pro\ 
leadership training. 

The Christian educator will continue to maintain high standards for its professii 
with diligent effort being made toward practical training and application that will he 
persons carry out their commitment to Christ in everyday living.

Committee on Camping Ministry 
Dr. J. S. Blair, Jr., Chairman 
I. Report for 1971-72. 

A. We, recommended, in addition to the eight weeks of regular resident Camp, specui 
camps for families, mentally retarded, senior high aquatics, local church group: jj 
two-week and four-week camps. 

Report: These programs were all conducted in the summer of 1971 with a tofej 
attendance of 1584, 100 more than 1970. 

B. We recommended a resident manager at Camp Kerr Lake to supervise the new day us 
area and coordinate use of the camp. 

Report: Steve and Karen Ruterford were assigned to Kerr Lake for the summe 
by the Duke Divinity School. Since early fall Henry Grant has been living at thj 
camp and serving as camp manager. It has been a busy and exciting year witil 
1441 persons using the camp. 

C. We recommended that the Board of Education be authorized to continue to receive 
funds for the Campership Fund to help disadvantaged persons attend camp. 

Report: The Myra Morris Campership Fund was established as an endowed fun 
which now has grown to approximately $4,400.00 In 1971 a total of $1,690 wall 
spent to help 109 persons attend camp. 

D. We recommended that efforts be continued to develop an inclusive camping prograr. 
at both the camper and staff levels. 

Report: Staff interview sessions were conducted at twenty college campuses, I 
eastern North Carolina. The Campership Fund was used to help disadvange: 
persons attend camp. 

E. We recommended that possiblilities be explored for ecumenical and cooperativ 
approaches to camping. 

Report: An interdenomination regional camp training and planning session wa 
set up for the southeast in April, 1972. A group from our summer camp trainin 
staff were sent. 






Journal of Proceedings 271 

F. We recommended that local churches be encouraged and helped to make better year 

round use of our four campsites for Day Camping, Retreats, Planning Sessions 

Fellowship, Enrichment, Study Setting, etc. ' 

Report: New and improved brochures for each camp were prepared and 

distributed, showing available facilities at the camps and possible uses. Year-round 

use ha<; increased noticeably this year

Report: In '971-72, an indication of a shift in emphasis from property to 

personnel and supervision was the securing of a resident manager at Camp 

Don-Lee and Kerr Lake, and the employment of an assistant to the 

Superintendent of Camps. 
I. We recommended that the Committee on Camping Ministry be authorized to proceed 
with the construction and development of priorities at each camp, based on priorities 
set by the Camp Committee, as funds become available, without incurring 
indebtedness. 

Report: Major developments this year include: 

Chestnut Ridge: New canvass for the wagons and hogans and the addition of 
some teepees. 

Don-Lee: Improvements in the manager's residence, renovation of the kitchen, 
and replacement of the pier. 

Kerr Lake: Opening of the new Family Camping Area this spring; new canvass 
and cooking equipment for the hogan units. 

Rockfish: A new pavilion given by the Chestnut Street Church in Lumberton as 
part of the Day -Use Area. 
J. Budget Summary: 

Program: We came through the summer of 1971 with an optimistic program report. 
Fees for retreat groups and summer camp remain the same this year as last. Although 
salaries and food costs have gone up, we expect, through increasing year-round use of 
the camps and diversified summer program, to continue with a balanced budeet. 

Balance May 31, 1971 -'. . . $ 9,856.88 (included in 

Receipts 82,843.72 Receipts) 

Disbursements 70,349.83 

Balance January 31, 1972 12,493.89 

Maintenance: Costs continue to rise as our four camps are improved and as their use 
increases. The Maintenance Fund will continue to need undergirding by workgroups 
and special projects: 

Budged 1971-1972 $41,912.13 

Spent 29,517.34 

Balance January 31,1972 12,394.79 

Crusade: This is the final year of the Camp Crusade, undertaken to help meet some of 
the emergency needs of the camps. Of the $300,000 goal, approximately two-thirds 
has been paid in. It is hoped that churches, individuals, and groups who have not done 
so will make every effort to complete their share of this important part of their 
church's ministry. 
Major projects compled to date through the Camp Crusade include: 

Chestnut Ridge: The Staff House and the Mebane Cabin 

Don-Lee: The new beach, renovation of kitchen, roofs, beds, improvements in 
manager's residence.

|imarv of Oral Reports of College Representatives to Commission Members 

Representatives of conference related institutions of higher education 
«nted oral reports at the Commission meeting on February 22, 1972. The 

jwing highlights are summarized from these reports. 
11 Financial difficulties among the colleges are directly related to insufficient 

enrollment. 
L Tuition fees are higher than public schools. 
JL 1 Scholarship and loan programs offset a large number of hardship cases, 

but funds are insufficient to meet the need. 
L The program of assistance to private colleges by the North Carolina 
■J General Assembly will be of tremendous value in the long run. 
i. Cooperative movements among students and alumni can operate to reduce 
|[ costs of operation, recruitment, and esprit de corps on our campuses. 
i. Methodist people must send their Methodist young people to our Meth- 
{! odist colleges in larger numbers than at present. 
I| The continued operation of colleges that enroll mostly black students 
It can be justified on the basis of the needs of these people in the 
tj sociological and ethnic challenges that are unique to them. 
I. The problems of deferred maintenance and capital expenditures are a 
" part of long-range needs. The reduction of capital indebtedness is 
j I encouraging but still remains critical in some cases. 
U The development of community colleges and technical institutes has 
•■ encouraged the church-related schools to take a close look at their 
I policies of enrollment and transfer. 
I Each church-related college must be able to state its unique contribution to 

I toe religious and educational processes which justify the existance of that 
! I institution as a seperate entity. "We need to be more unashamedly Christian." 

l: A concerted effort to reduce the attrition of students already enrolled in 
[; church colleges could help to maintain enrollment as well as a higher goal to 

educate students who would lose their opportunity for higher education. 
P From the Divinity School comes the report that there is a renewed interest in the 
[' parish ministry and a concern to bolster the work of the practical fields. 
I) Ministerial education funds came at a time when many divinity schools were m 

I I financial difficulty. This fund has been a real blessing to ministerial education 
both in divinity schools and other training enterprises. 

i Campus ministries on non- Methodist campuses are working under the limitations of a 
strict budget. Some new ministries are needed and it becomes more apparent that all 
new ministries must be ecumenical enterprises. 

ft Communications with the presidents and officials on college campuses point out 



278 North Carolina Annual Conference 

the obvious needs and the spirit of cooperation. We must strengthen the ties that 
make the work of the college and the church a true partnership in mission. Our 
human resources are now needed to solve problems that are described as financial 
and spiritual-we must have people!

A Study: 

THE FUTURE OF NORTH CAROLINA METHODIST COLLEGES* 

Bishop Cannon, Rev. Winberry, members of the Annual Conference, fellow Methodis; 
appreciate very much the opportunity to address the Annual Conference on the subject I 
Future of North Carolina Methodist Colleges." Please know that what I am about to say co 
with the general endorsement of your Commission on Christian Higher Education and 
Campus Ministry and the Conference Board of Education, the specific endorsement j 
majority of the membership of these two groups, and further, to use John Gardner's phr 
from "a critical lover." 

By definition when this conference considers the future of North Carolina Metho 
colleges, it includes not only those related in the most direct way-Louisburg, North Caro 
Wesleyan and Methodist-but also some aspects concerning those related historica 1 
Greensboro and High Point. Add to these involvements, an emerging though financially si 
relationship with Bennett and the historic interest in Duke, now expressed primarily thro 
limited sustaining support of the Divinity School. 

The 1970 Annual Conference asked that a study be made of the relationship of 
Conference to the colleges supported in part by this Conference. An interim report was^ 
sented to the 1971 Annual Conference which indicated that there were too many quest 
which could not be answered immediately and recommended that the study period be 
tended. 

At that time (in June 1971) there were far-reaching proposals concerning the financin 1 
higher education both at the state and federal level which, if funded to any degree, W(J 
influence the current and future status of our Methodist related colleges. 

In addition the three Conference colleges-Louisburg, North Carolina Wesleyan, 
Methodist-were all in fund-raising campaigns as well as in the middle of accelerated recrui 
campaigns for new students. 

Then, too, the Conference would in the months immediately following the 1971 Art 
Conference session discuss and act on key issues which have an enormous long-range inr 
upon the total financial structure of the Conference. 

Further it was the opinion of a number of the members of the Commission that to b 
the Conference to any decision regarding the future relationship of the Conference anc 
colleges, no matter how necessary the ultimate resolve, would be premature until the follov 
questions could be answered: 

(1) What continuing financial support is needed by the colleges? 

(2) What is the role of the Conference college in support of the 
program of the local church and of the Conference? 

(3) What action will Federal and State governments take in support 
of private higher education? 

(4) What position will the Council on the Church-Related Colleges, a task 
force created by the Division of Higher Education of the General Board 
of Education of the United Methodist Church, take regarding "whether" 
and "why" viz a viz the total involvement of the United Methodist 
Church in higher education? 



*Cameron West, Chairman, Commission on Christian Higher Education and Can- 
Ministry of the North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church, June 7, 1972 



Journal of Proceedings 279 

Since last June the national task force of the church has published a number of papers, 
; contradictory to others. National and jurisdictional meetings have been held to discuss 
ngs and alternate positions. In general the answer has been that the church cannot 
d to get out of higher education even though many are not convinced that the church 
tfford to stay in. The papers published so far suggest that the church college in current 
s is having an increasingly difficult job of defining a way in which it can be appreicated 
ciently enough to attract students and serve the church in traditional ways. In the final 
in of the national study groups, under the general leadership of Dr. Myron Wicke of the 
ville office, a strong call has come for maintenance and increased support of Methodist 
ges as being vital to the church. Such a call to be effective must be given strong witness 
e conference level and in the majority of our local churches. 

With regard to federal and state support, the congressional session is still in process, but 
becoming apparent that large scale assistance from Washington is not to be forthcoming 
year. While we might expect some increased type of federal intervention over that of 
jast year, such support, unless fully funded, is not likely to change significantly present 
itions and thus current problems, either for private institutions or for students at- 
ing private colleges and universities. 

The North Carolina General Assembly did increase its loan program for students and 
jass landmark legislation regarding the State and its relationship with private colleges, 
lation authorizing contracts to provide financial aid to needy North Carolina students 
ding the 41 private colleges was funded for over $1 million. The money will be paid to 
te colleges and universities on the basis of additional North Carolinians beyond a base 
Ument in 1970 (up to $450 per student) and a smaller amount (approximately $25 per 
;nt) for each North Carolina student enrolled up to the base figure. Though this amount 
not "save" any college, it is a clear expression of appreciation of the contribution of the 
te college to the State and further recognition that this contribution be continued and 
nded if possible. 

The legislation establishing the Board of Governors and a redefined University of North 
lina charges the Board with assessing the needs and problems of private higher 
ation so that recommendations can be made to the end that the contribution of private 
ges may be continued. 
Given, however, the large number of requests from all state agencies to be made to the 

General Assembly, only the most optimistic see much increase in this program for the 
'-75 biennium. 

Representatives of your Commission have met with Bishop Cannon, with Dr. C. P. 
is, and with the presidents of the Methodist colleges on several occasions this past year. 

chairman visited each campus located in the Conference in November to discuss at 
hand with the president and members of his administration and faculty the questions 
e us and to evaluate the status of the physical facilities. 

Following a meeting in late October, Presidents Robbins, Collins, and Weaver outlined a 
ised church-college relationship statement which sought to answer the two questions: 
Vhat do our colleges expect and need from the Conference? and (2) what do our 
:hes expect and need from our colleges? The statement as drafted added a third section 
ping how this partnership should be achieved. 

n all of our meetings and conversations the college presidents were divided upon the 
for an indepth study or updating of the so-called "Decker Report." They were agreed 
instead a report of assets was needed. They said that most of the problems came from 
>asic one-lack of students in general and Methodist students specifically. A concensus 
lally emerged from these discussions that what was needed was not a study but instead 
itive plan and procedure. 

rom the discussions with presidents of the three colleges and from many others, 
ters and laymen alike, it also became clear to your Commission that the overall 
onship between campus and local pastor is not a close one and is not designed nor 

at present to channel students at an appropriate and necessary rate into our Methodist 
;es. We note with little exception since 1968 the continuing decrease in student 
hnent in Methodist colleges. If we were to examine the number of Methodists and 
er the number from this Conference we would see that the aspirations of the late 50"s 



280 North Carolina Annual Conference 

have been less than realized. This is true even though since 1955 the total enrollment in 
North Carolina public and private institutions has tripled from less than 50,000 of which? 
(48% private) to nearly 150,000 (33% private). While the enrollment in private colleges has ! 
doubled during this time, the public sector has quadrupled. Furthermore, last year when fhe*i 
private colleges increased their enrollment 4%, all but one of the United Methodist colleges | 
in North Carolina reported lower student totals. 

Representatives of conference related institutions of higher education presented oral 
reports at the Commission meeting this past February 22, 1972. 

The following highlights are summarized from these reports: 

1. Financial difficulties among the colleges are directly related to insufficient 
enrollment. 

2. One factor causing the enrollment problem is that tuition fees are higher than: 
those of public instituitions. 

3. Scholarship and loan programs offset a large number of hardship cases, but 
available scholarship and loan funds are insufficient to meet the need. 

4. The program of assistance to private colleges by the N. C. General Assembly will 
be of value in the long run, but to be effective, it must be increased significantly. 

5. Methodists must send their young people to our Methodist colleges in larger 
numbers than at present. 

6. The problems of deferred maintenance and capital expenditures are a part of 
long-range needs. The reduction of capital indebtedness is encouraging but still 
remains critical. 

7. Each church-related college must be able to state its unique contribution to the, 
religious and educational processes which justify the existence of that institution 
as a separate entity. 

8. A concerted effort to reduce the attrition of students already enrolled in church;; 
colleges could help to maintain enrollment as well as serving a higher goal of 
educating students who otherwise would lose their opportunity for higher 4 
education. 

9. Communications with the presidents and officials on college campuses point out 
the obvious financial needs and the spirit of cooperation. We must strengthen the I 
ties that make the work of the college and the church a true partnership in j S 
mission. Our human resources are now needed to solve problems that are discribed 'j 
as financial and spiritual - we must have people! 

These candid statements reflect an increasing willingness of the college administrators to 5 
face the problems and solutions as more than just "money. " 

In the meetings of the Commission over the past four years, in discussion with those I 
responsible for the nurture of our institutions of higher education, in talking with laymen | 
and ministers who are concerned about the role of higher education in the future of our , 
church, even though at the same time there are those asking "how can we get out of a vast 
commitment to higher education?", there seems to be a stronger voice saying that we must 
save our colleges and utilize them for the future of our church far more effectively than has 
been true in the immediate past several years. There is a constant reiteration that the 1 
Conference needs much more service from the institutions than is now being recieved. 

It is true that there are many deficiencies some of which I have listed. In addition to \ 
the more widely known fiscal problems, there are serious problems of deferred maintenance 
on our physical facilities and unless more adequate support is forthcoming there will be 
serious academic deficits. I mention the latter to call attention that we cannot afford to 
sponsor colleges where the support for programs and personnel are not competitive with 
comparable institutions in the public sector. 
Quite simply our colleges must: 

(1) be academically competive so that the graduates may find success in further study 
and vocational pursuit, 

(2) give and emphasize attention to the individual, and 

(3) provide an environment that is unashamedly Christian, however we might define 
such an atmosphere. 



Journal of Proceedings 281 

These three principles are expensive but providing less for agencies of the United 
thodist church will cost more in both short range and most especially in the long run. 

My allotted time this morning is limited and though I could easily and would gladly 
id here all day and into the night to discuss the issue with you, let me hasten on. 
Before moving to specific recommendations to the Conference for the next 
drenium, there are three additional comments. 

First, from Duke Divinity School comes the report that there is a renewed interest in 
parish ministry and a concern to bolster the work of the practical fields. Ministerial 
cation funds came at a time when many divinity schools were in financial difficulty. This 
d has been a real blessing to ministerial education both in divinity schools and other 
ning enterprises. It is essential that the fund or its equivalent be continued and enlarged. 
Secondly, campus ministries on non-Methodist campuses are working under the 
itations of a strict budget. It becomes more apparent that new ministries must be 
eloped if we are to meet the challenge on the public campuses. 

Thirdly, there is sincere division over the future of the historic black college, such as 
mett. Many feel that these institutions which have provided practically the only 
lortunity in the past for developing black leadership for the church should be continued 
supported at a greater level. This is the basic position of the church itself as well as the 
incil of Presidents of twelve Negro colleges related to the United Methodist church. 
iers feel that this question of the role of black colleges should be kept open for 
:ussion. The question cannot be ignored nor can we discount the need to develop a more 
lpatible society in what will be an increasingly integrated community. Full discussion of 
best way to utilize Bennett College and other colleges connected with our church must 
continued throughout the next four years. 

' This is my third opportunity to report to an Annual Conference this quadrenium. 
ing these four years, your Commission on Christian Higher Education and the Campus 
istry has tried to face the college issue as your representatives. 

! In the delightful and instructive story, Alice in Wonderland, Alice asks the Cheshire Cat, 
kich way shall I go'.'" And the cat replies, "where are you trying to get to?" 
| Alice then says/it really doesn't matter." To which the Cheshire Cat replies, "Well, in 
case, it really doesn't matter which way you go." 

Dear Friends, your Commission and your Board of Education and many, many others, 
tiding your chairman, think that it is important which way we go. We would point out 
her as the Cheshire Cat did, that if the answer is only to get to some undefined goal, you 
>ure to do that if you keep going long enough. 

We have come to the distinct conclusion that these colleges represent a marvelous 
ortunity for the extension of our church and the Christian heritage. Frankly, so long as 
iew our Methodist colleges as "problems" frustration will continue. 
It seems to us that the Conference for good reason decided in the mid 1950's to take an 
;ased role in educating talented young people in a Christian setting and under the 
isorship of Christian principles. If the decision were not proper in any way, perhaps it 
only to the extreme degree of ambition at that time and a vagueness of priority since, 
have three institutions, each different from the other and in large measure serving 
irate constituencies. The potential is there to give great service necessary for the viability 
he church. We simply are not using these colleges nor are the colleges offering full 
>rtunities to the Conference. There is here a "circle of deficiency" which must be 
:en by the two-fold process of getting more Methodist young people into the colleges 
developing a more direct relationship between the college campus and the local church, 
do this, the North Carolina Conference will be a leader--not in higher education but 
:r for the greater glory of God and our Savior. And that, friends, is why we are here. 
Specifically we must develop such a close relationship between these colleges and each 
church that service to humanity is brought to its greatest peak of implementation, 
is nothing more idealistic nor more practical than this goal. It is a realistic aspiration, 
tively modest expenditures are necessary but the rewards are everlasting. This 
"erence is in desperate need of leadership training opportunities in ways in which we are 
only paying lip service. The colleges need nurture and love from the local church which 
for the most part is missing. 



282 North Carolina Annual Conference 

What are some practical ways by which we can break the circle of non-sen 
non-appreciation, and non-attendance? 

(1) Immediate steps must be taken by Conference officials and representatives of e 
college located in the N. C. Conference boundaries to develop ways, means, and program 
increase, many fold, its service to the Conference and to the local church. The relation: 
must be so demanding, so enthusiastic, and so influential that the tangible bonds bec< 
those of the committed spirit rather than tokenism. Support in the form of students 
resource will inevitably follow. 

(2) Each campus should employ for a three-year period, beginning this fall, a vib 
alumnus to visit in the conference area each church, each pastor, and as many of 
Methodist homes as possible to explain the opportunities available at Louisburg, at N 
Wesleyan, and at Methodist in Fayetteville. 

(3) We must raise our sustaining support to higher levels. My personal recommends 
is that this figure go to at least $250,000 annually each for Wesleyan and Methodist! 
$175,000 for Louisburg and designate these additional funds to support scholarship: 1 
loan opportunities and to reduce tuition for Methodist students from this Confere 
Consideration should be given to lower tuition charges for Conference members' 
additional scholarship and loan funds should be established in each church for its y% 
people attending Conference colleges. 

(4) Each college should be encouraged to engage in individual fund-raising campz. 
for both current operational support and also to reduce indebtness. 

(5) No new buildings should be undertaken without adequate financing cl< 
discernible. (There are building needs but these should not be undertaken without fi 
largely in sight.) Additional self-liquidating projects will add to financial problems, 
prevent them. 

(6) An evaluation must be made of the historic relationship of the Conference j 
Greensboro and High Point. The Commission has recommended this evaluation to you^ 
Annual Report. 

There are other practical ideas which would evolve from those listed above. 

We are at a cross roads or a fork or a U turn; either way, a decision point. De we re 
from higher education or does this Conference continue to consider a view of hi 
education which believes that it is important to our faith and its institutional lite. 

. . . The campus, acknowledged battleground for ideas rjid the place for 
gaining allegiance of leaders, is more than a place of casual interest for the 
church. It is here that the climate and mood of the future must be 
ascertained and the leaders discovered and confirmed if the faith would 
continue to speak and serve relevantly. It is here that the faith must meet, 
cope with and master the alien forces or ideas that threaten. The campus, in 
one sense, becomes the central point of engagement in the ever-existent 
battle for the world. . . .* 

Are our Methodist colleges to be considered "problems" or are they instead to be ut 
as "opportunities?" 

We have about three or four years at the most to discover the answer, some say less. \ 
recommendations above and others which may follow are not successful, there are those 
who feel that realistic alternatives by 1975 or 1976 may be to "free" individual institutic 
seek other support and sponsorship or to close. 

Our church cannot afford to sponsor less than first quality programs within a .« 
mission. Unless we intensify and expand the relationship between Conference, local churcl 
college, we should face squarely the realities of the current situation. 

We recommend this accelerated activity. If the effort is not forthcoming, if the spin 
will are both too weak, three to four years should unmask it. If, on the other hand, the 
Carolina Conference is to fulfill its mission of service, outreach, and revival, no activity a 
spiritual commitment in support of conference colleges will be in vain.

Regional Commission on Christian Higher Education and Campus Ministry 
Report for 1971-1972 

Dr. Philip L. Shore, Jr., Chairman 

n a time of unpredictable change it is gratifying to report that the campuses of our state

ters. In the often-reported opinons of these excellent men and women, we are experienc- 
time of great opportunity with a generation of open and inquiring students, 
hiring the year, our two cooperating Conferences supported work at A and T University, 
isboro; Appalachian State University, Boone; Duke University, Durham; The Wesley Foun- 
i at Greenville; North Carolina Central University, Durham (ecumenically supported); The 
y Foundation at Raleigh (two campus ministers); The University of North Carolina at 
;1 Hill (one minister, one associate); The University of North Carolina at Charlotte 
lenically supported); The University of North Carolina at Greensboro; Pembroke State 
risty (part-time); Western Carolina University; The Wesley Foundation at Winston-Salem, 
'ersonnel changes this year saw Miss Cathy Carlson installed as campus minister at Duke; 
Jheryl Scrimsher as associate at Wesley Foundation, Raleigh; and Hugh Stohler as associate 
fC-Chapel Hill. 

Tie Commission is in the process of examining the other state-supported colleges and 

rsities to explore the opportunity for new programs. The University of North Carolina at 

ngton is expected to request support of an ecumenical work on that campus. 

Tie work of the Commission has been carried on primarily through the intensive work of 

jommittees on Personnel, Program, Finance, Facilities, and Church-Related Colleges/In- 

ons. The Commission chairman continues to act as State Director. Guidelines for the 

Ived operation of each of the committees have been drawn up and adopted. 

lontinuing the process of seeking a better expression of The United Methodist Church's 

litment to an ecumencial approach to campus ministry (par. 1037, 1968 Discipline), the 

nal Commission has helped to form a Commission on Campus Ministry consisting of 

dist, Episcopal, and Presbyterian (U.S.) representatives. The initial plans of the group are: 

confer on a regular basis; (2) to confer when an opening comes in the ministries 

ted by any one of the three denominations; (3) to work toward securing a Field Director 

overall supervision to the work of these denominations on campus ministry. 

he Bishop's Conference on Higher Education (set for June 29-30, 1972) promises to be of 

jenefit to our entire field of higher education and campus ministry. This long-projected 

ig will bring together a broad representation of the education agencies of the two 

ences; the Regional Commission; college and university administration, students, and 

s; and other persons who can contribute to the strength of the United Methodist 

ry through higher education. The theme of the conference is "The College-Related 

l." 

rateful always for the long and faithful support of the two Conferences, the Commission 
mid remind our constituencies that inflation makes new demands upon our tight budget 
lrfher, that new fields of service cannot be entered into (nor a statewide ecumenical 
be employed) until additional monies are made available to the Regional Commission,

THE COMMISSION ON ENLISTMENT 
FOR CHURCH OCCUPATIONS 

The Commission on Enlistment for Church Occupations is charged with the responsibj 
for promoting among youth and adults a philosophy for Christian vocations that recognizes 
potential sacredness of all useful work and all opportunities for Christian service. It is furl 
called on by the church to present to youth and adults the opportunities for the past 
ministry, to inform them of the necessary steps of preparation and to keep accurate, and us 
records of each person having indicated an interest in a church occupation. With the abov 
mind, the Commission on Enlistment for Church Occupations has done the following: 

1. Guidance and Testing Clinic was held at Wesleyan College, Rocky Mount, N. C. IT 
clinic was conducted for high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors on Octotl 
22-23, 1971, February 11-12, 1972, and March 24-25, 1972. 

2. A central filing system is being kept on persons interested in the pastoral ministry aj 
other church employment. This file is kept in the Program Council Director's off! 
and is updated each year. 

3. In an effort to promote Ministry Sunday a joint letter from the Commission j 
Enlistment for Church Occupations and the Board of the Ministry was mailed to evtl 
pastor in the North Carolina Conference. 

4. A special luncheon was held at Duke Universtiy in Old Trinity Room on Monday, Jt| 
5, by this Commission and the Board of the Ministry for candidates coming into fj 
connection at the 1972 Annual Conference. 

5. Lay Scholarship offerings were received at all Lay Rallies and a number of scholarship 
were presented to deserving students. 

6. A one-day meeting on the pastoral ministry was held at Edenton Street Unrl 
Methodist Church on Saturday, April 8. Both the Commission and Confereil 
Committee on Youth Work shared in the planning of this meeting. 

7. Voluntary Intern Programs were encouraged by the Commission to be held aj 
number of churches. This program seeks to develop talent to work in local chu'f 
situations as youth workers, church musicians, children's workers and other chuf 
involved programs. 

8. This Commission Chairman, as a member of the Interboard Committee on Chu'J 
Occupations for the national church, attended the Annual Board Meeting in Daytj- 
Ohio, on October 14 and 15. At this meeting he was appointed to share in the drafr 
of important legislation to be sent to the General Conference pertaining to the IT 
organizational structure which would affect the Interboard Committee on Enlistmf 
for Church Occupations.

THE BOARD OF EVANGELISM, INCORPORATED 

The late Bishop Ralph Cushman wrote "More of us need a certainty about Christ. Cert 
is that Evangelism - essential Evangelism - must be sure that this Christ whom Paul pictul 
'Lord' must be exalted as the supreme object of the soul's allegiance . . .to the Apostle 
Christianity meant Christ the Lord. The Sermon on the Mount did indeed offer the nc 1 
ethical standards that earth had ever known. But the heart of that sermon was the Christ 
preached it. Paul was sure of his gospel only because he was sure of his Lord." 

As we end this quadrennium of service to our Lord through this Board - a service th^ 
been constant and exemplary by all members of the Board - we recognize that this has tj 
time of tremendous change within the structure of the Church and our Conference, 
change is yet to come. Yet, we rejoice in the privilege we have had to serve. 

We now join the recently adjourned General Conference in a common concern that 
needs to be more genuine and knowledgable confrontation on a person-to-person 
extending the love of Jesus Christ, His grace, and the opportunity to serve through His Ch \ 
To fail to put Evangelism first is to put the cart before the horse. It is an awesome tr;

ise it lulls us into thinking that we can assume the task of Evangelism is done and we can 
scatter from the church after Divine Worship to share what we do not have. To those who 
out Evangelism as being the code word for generalized, sugary piousness of another 
ation, we are brought up short by the startling fact that our membership is generally 
ling. While we have been "busy here and. there about many things" the essential spirit of 
Christ may well be leaving the church we love. Dean Kelley, an official of the National 
cil of Churches, reveals the hard truth backed by honest statistics. In his recent book, Why 
ervative Churches Are Growing, Kelley does not find that people are attempting to escape 
sterday, avoid social concerns, seek self-determinism and isolation, or evade connectional 
nsibility. He discovers that people want to be sure about Jesus and they want a whole 
:1 and a whole church and whole life-not just a structure and a busy organizational chart. 
ir Board commends The Reverend Ernest R. Porter for his help in co-ordinating our annual 
am during the past vear.

tent at Kitty Hawk and the Bogue Banks ministry have reached more than 150,000 in 
varied projects and programs.

rsity on the 14th and 15th. Praticipating were leaders in Evangelism from the Western 

Carolina Conference, The North Carolina Conference, The General Board of Evangelism

pastors, one-day Evangelism workshops on Rethinking Evangelism and Models of

end Mr. Porter. 

Board President offered his services as consultant and preacher as his time permitted and 
ver he was invited. He was involved in activities in four districts and at all Program 
il functions. 

ing the year the Conference Secretary of Evangelism along with District Secretaries and 
tecutive Committee of the Board have been working toward programing for "Key '73,"

Board continued to confirm its affiliation with and support of the Commission on

During our Meeting of the Full Board on March 9, 1972, we commended the Church to tj 
stewardship of total commitment through local church participation in Key '73 and submitt

PART I - REVIEW OF THE YEAR 

The conference year 1971-1972 has been a time for continued planning for the future an 
time of action. There have been no radical changes; rather, the progress has been steady. 

In September 1971, the Board developed a campus development plan. This plan include 
map of the campus and the decisions made by the Board in previous sessions for adding ( 
additional cottage to our campus and replacing one of the existing cottages. This plan will gu 
in the future development of recreation activity areas and the beautification of the vari'l 
segments of our campus. 

The architectural and engineering firm of Adams and Pegram was selected to draw the pi 
for the proposed cottages and for the remodeling of the Vann Administration Building, 
firm is in the process of preparing plans now, but final decisions have not been made. 

Revised Personnel Policies were adopted to take effect October 1, 1971. Included ij 
revision in the salary schedules and a revised Pension Plan for our retired employees. We expj 
these policies to help in the effort to recruit better qualified staff and to hold them. 

The development of the center of our campus for the use of the children as their recreate 
and activity area has continued. Drainpipes were laid to take care of the surface water 
concrete playing court was laid, surrounded by a fence, to be used for basketball, ten, 
volleyball and other court games that could be played out of doors. It is intended 
concentrate all of the outdoor recreation activities in this area in the future. 

The Groveland House in the Cameron Park area, which had been purchased last year, was 
into use in August 1971. The purpose of this facility is to provide a better opportunity 
older youth, approaching the time when they will be leaving the Methodist Home, tc< 
prepared for the acceptance of full responsibility for themselves. By separating these studi 
from the campus, we are able to carry on a different program than would be possible on' 
campus. In the Groveland House, the students are much more involved in the decisi 
concerning their own personal lives and conduct; and in making all the decisions involve 
operating the house. They have much more responsibility for budgeting men own expe)

The Seniors graduated June 2, 1972. As we evaluate this first year's experience, we are sure 
this has been a helpful experience for these students. We believe that it will be even 
helpful for the next group of students because we have learned many lessons throughj 
experience.

his year, our children in public school have had theii usual share of the proolems, and, in 
ition, they have had the problems that have arisen from having been assigned to different

is. It has been necessary to use our own bus part of the time. Most students have taken the 
lged situation in their stride, but some of them have had difficulty in making the necessary 
justments. 

group of people from a rapidly developing area in North Raleigh became interested in 
nizing the North Raleigh United Methodist Church. Since there was no meeting place 
kible in their geographic area, arrangements were made for them to use the Monk Memorial 
pel on our campus temporarily for their beginning new church. We are glad that we could 
r our facilities for this purpose. The new church is anticipating that their building will be 
y to occupy in the fall, and they will be able to move to their own quarters. 

fire occured in the gymnasium on July 21, 1971, as a result of defective wiring. Damage 
in the neighborhood of $22,000 and was covered by insurance. In the course of repairing 
damage we elected also to make some necessary improvements to the building. The result is 

the gym is much more adequate for our use now than before the fire. It is a constant 
er of activity on our campus. 
very year, at Easter, the Alumni of the Methodist Home for Children have their reunion. At 

• meeting at Easter 1972, the Alumni made a gift of $1,000 to the Home to be added to 

• previous gifts which are being held in reserve for the Alumni project. Plans are to build a 
picnic shelter in the new recreation area to take the place of the picnic shelter, presently in 
ind in great need of repair, which had been orginally the gift of the Alumni. 

uring the year we have had an unusual turnover in our staff. Two members of our staff have 
i removed by retirement. Several others have resigned and taken other jobs. The result has 
|i an unusually large number of necessary replacements. Because of the age of our present 
L there will be very few retirements in the next ten years. 

PART II - PLANS FOR THE FUTURE 

le Five- Year Plan of Action 1971-1975, which was adopted by the Board of Trustees in 

1971 and which was reported to the Annual Conference in our report last year, will be 
njide for the next four years. The necessary enabling decision has already been made by the 
d of Trustees for the construction of one cottage to replace Borden cottage, which is very 
;quate for use, as a residence for children. As soon as plans for the cottage can be 
sleted, a contract will be let. Plans are also in the making for providing adequate office 

for our staff, but final commitments have not been made. A decision has been reached to 
riment with a change in concept of providing health care to the students on campus. For 
>eriod of one year, students who are not well enough to go to school, but not sick enough 
quire hospitalization, will be cared for in their cottages rather than in the Infirmary. The 
ose is to find a way to put into practice the recommendation of Dr. Keith-Lucas that 
y sick children be cared for by their own house-parents during this time when a child has 
uch emotional need. This will eliminate the overnight use of the Infirmary in the cases of 
illness. The Infirmary will be used as an outpatient clinic. Our Health Staff will continue 
)k after all the health needs of the children, including their appointments with the doctors, 
basis of this experiment, future decisions will be made about the Health Care program. 

such time as a suitable house can be secured, a second off-campus home will be purchased 
at additional high school students may have the same opportunity presendy provided by 
roveland House.

REPORT NO. 2 
THE METHODIST RETIREMENT HOMES, INC. 

On September 1, 1955, The Methodist Retirement Home in Durham opened its doors to 
thirteen charter members with a capacity of forty. Today a 50 bed Health Center, forty- 



Journal of Proceedings 289 



ipartments and added domiciliary facilities give The Home a capacity of 200. The Home has 
jberved over 400 retired persons. 

I Beginning with thirty acres of land donated by the Methodists of Durham and a $100,000 
Inemorial donation in 1954, The Home has grown to a capital investment in excess of 
[$2,000,000 without a capital funds drive by the Annual Conference. Also the total 
Impropriations of the Annual Conference over the years is less than the cost of the benevolent 
work done in the name of The Church by The Home. 

I In a study to determine the best way to meet the needs of an ever-increasing number of the 
[retired members of our Conference, the Board of Trustees of The Methodist Retirement 
Homes, Inc., sought the answer to four questions: 

(S THERE A NEED FOR ADDITIONAL FACILITIES? 

I The Home in Durham is now filled to its capacity of 200 with the number of applications 
Increasing rapidly. The number of people sixty five years of age in our population and in our 
bhurch membership will double within the next fifteen years. This means that to serve the same 
proportionate number of people the facilities will have to be doubled. Seventy-five percent 
1 75%) of the serious inquiries and applications for admission to The Home are from within a 
radius of fifty miles of Durham. Two-thirds of the Members are from the Burlington, Durham 
«ind Raleigh Districts. This does not mean that the retired members of the other nine Districts 
i'lo not need or want the services offered by The Home but points out that older people want to 
f-emain close to "home" and "family." The faculties will have to be doubled to meet the 
present needs of the members in the other nine Districts. 

J Older people try to maintain themselves in their own community as long as possible, but as 
IrJiey live longer, a larger percent are eventually dependent on others for help. It is becoming 
impossible to hire or to pay for someone to go into a private home to help an older person. 
(Therefore more people are expecting the church to provide a Home in which they may spend 
,:heir remaining years. A Church Home provides a plus which cannot be obtained in other 
places. 

tfHAT KIND OF SERVICES ARE NEEDED? 

j If our church is truly to meet the needs of its retired people it must make provision to care 
(for more retired "well" persons at homes strategically located within the Conference. These 
hiust include facilities for domiciliary care, apartments and cottages along with nursing facilities 
p care for these when individuals become sick. 

j Seventy-five percent of the applications for admission to The Home in Durham are from 
fJiose who are no longer potential "retirement home members" but are already nursing cases 
Decause of chronic or critical illnesses. If the large group of chronically ill (long-term care 
Patients) and nursing cases are to be cared for, facilities must be provided to serve these. 
| Many other Conferences of The United Methodist Church are now building faculties to care 
,:or the chronically and critically ill, in addition to their retirement homes now in operation. 
Ihis is because they are finding a rapid increase in the demand for this service to those who are 
loo sick to be admitted to a retirement home. Can our Conference turn its back on the needs of 
ts retired members? 
WHERE IS THE GREATEST NEED? 

I A North Carolina Medical Care Commission Survey shows that the greatest needs for 
Additional nursing care facilities are in the eastern part of the Conference. 

The Home in Durham is not meeting the needs of the Church's members in nine of the 
twelve Districts. 
HOW CAN THE NEED BE MET? 

The Board of Trustees feels that with the land and availability of Medical Services in 
Durham, a Health Care Center or Nursing Facility should be constructed in Durham when funds 
ue available. They also feel that cottages and more apartments should be provided as needed, 
For these are self supporting. . 

A Nursing Care Faculty should not be built for less than 100 to 150 beds, for economical 
operation and because there must be at least three levels of care m a nursing home, that is, 



290 North Carolina Annual Conference 

skilled nursing care, for short-term patients and the critically ill, care for the long-term', 
chronically ill, and care for those who need close supervision. 

Studies show that costs of construction of a new nursing home facility of the qualtiy oV 
buildings we have in Durham will run approximately $30. per square foot, or $12,000 to 1 , 
$15,000 per bed. 

Nursing home costs of operation in the Charlotte to Raleigh piedmont section of North*; 
Carolina are running from $18 to $25 per day while costs in the eastern part of the State are* 
running somewhat less per day. 

The Board of Trustees of The Home, however, is convinced in the light of information!" 
available, THAT THE NEXT CONSTRUCTION SHOULD BE ANOTHER HOME* 
STRATEGICALLY LOCATED WITHIN THE CONFERENCE. 

The Annual Conference meeting in June approved the request of The Methodist Retirement/ 
Homes, Inc. for permission to begin construction of another Home strategically located further- 
east in the Conference as soon as land can be secured and financial arrangements made. The? 
first unit will include facilities for Skilled Nursing Care to serve The Home's Members when* 
they need its services as well as to accept nursing cases. Additional domiciliary facilities, l 
apartments and cottages will be added as the need arises and these can be financed. The' 
estimated cost for the first unit of 100 to 125 beds with sufficient land for future expansion I 
$1,500,000. 

The new home should be near a strongly concerned Methodist constituency. The Home* 
derives a large portion of its religious and social programs from the concerned Methodists in thef 
community, for they represent The United Methodist Church to the members of The Home. 

There must be available adequate utilities including transportation, skilled and unskilled 
labor. These are the practical resources from which The Home constructs its program of services 
to its members. 

Adequate medical services must be available, and a hospital, a church, and shopping facilities 
must be located within a reasonable distance of The Home. 

Individuals, families, and groups in the local area should contribute a significant portion of . 
the estimated cost for this demonstrates the readiness of the community to give the new home 
the kind of support that it must have. 

The Annual Conference will not be asked to conduct a capital funds campaign. With the 
increased resources available to older people through present and proposed governmental social 
service and health programs, the cost of benevolent work to the Conference should not 
materially increase, but will allow the Church to increase the number of people served through 
the benevolent program of The Home. 

A new Home offers an excellent opportunity for a living memorial for some individual or 
family, for The Home will grow and serve for generations. A person or persons making 
appropriate contributions to The Home may designate the Home or a portion of the Home as a 
memorial.

THE BOARD OF THE LAITY 

Chairman: Grier L. Garrick Secretary: Robert J. Marley 

Report No. 1 

The Conference Board of the Laity met twice at regularly scheduled meetings during the 
year, plus two special meetings at Annual Conference and at the Methodist Men's Retreat*, 
Attendance, as usual, was good at both our Fall and Spring meetings. During the early part ■ 
our Conference year organizational meetings were held in each District with the District Board!,!) 
of the Laity and representatives from the Program Council to discuss program plans foij, 
1971-72. J 

On August 21-22, we held our Methodist Men's Retreat at Methodist College with 15l| 
Laymen in attendance. The program was conducted by Charles Kellogg and Dwight Newberf 
from our General Board of the Laity and Harvey Mitchell, our Conference Director of Unitec 
Methodist Men. The vast majority of the Laymen attending the Retreat expressed a desire tha 
our Retreats be kept Spiritual in nature. The 1971 Retreat fulfilled this wish for most of thf 



Journal of Proceedings 291 

ticipants. It is our desire to continue to program these retreats so as to provide opportunities 
I Spiritual Enrichment and Christian growth. 

|Vs in^ previous years, the Board of the Laity has encouraged each local church to observe 
Oman's Day on October 8 , or on some other Sunday that might be more convenient for the 
Jticular congregation. 

October was also designated as Stewardship month and each District Board of the Laity was 
^ed to encourage participation of congregations within their Districts. We do not feel that this 
K of our program met with the success we had hoped for and we are therefore putting 
Sewed emphasis on January as Stewardship month during the coming year. 
Lay Officers training schools were held in most Districts under the sponsorship of the 
(jtrict Boards. It is planned that these schools will be continued in the future. However we 
pgnize a need to make the sessions more attractive to the Laity to be trained. 
j.n compliance with a request by the Conference Board of the Laity each District Board held 
Lay Speaker Training course prior to November. 1971. This training session trained 
froximately 450 Lay Speakers in time for the Lenten 'No Silent Pulpit" program of 1972. 
t various District Boards scheduled approximately 400 speaking dates for Lay Speakers 
(ling the Lenten season. We were especially encouraged by the "new faces" that appeared at 
I completed the Lay Speaker Training Sessions and then volunteered their services for the 
p Silent Pulpit" program. 

Lay Rallies were held in each District during February and a total of nearly 7000 Laity 
bnded these rallies. This year for the first time ladies were in attendance at all of the rallies 
| in at least one District attendance increased nearly 40% because of their presence. 

Report No. 2 
The Commission on Lay Life and Work 

; following are our continuing concerns: 

[Establish settings in each District for conversation between Laity and Clergy in which 
Understanding of the common ministry of witness and service of all Christians is sought, 
involve United Methodist Men through the UMM Retreat designed to inspire and educate 
bur Laymen, interwoven with Christian fellowship. 

Assist the Laity in developing their skills for service by improved and trained leadership 
prough seminars and workshops. These sessions would be held on Laymen's Day or some 
bther suitable day and would include training of Pastor-Parish Relations Committee, 
Administrative Boards. Charge Conferences,Board of Trustees, nominating committees, and 
|hose who serve as Lay Leader, Lay Member of Annual Conference and members of 
pommittee on Lay Personnel, and the training of Certified Lay Speakers. 
Support the clergy through the Lay Speaker program in supplying Certified Lay Speakers 
during the Lenten Season and at other times when the clergy needs time away from the local 
pulpit for retreats, training, and vacations. 

Provide assistance in coordinating the most efficient programs in witnessing opportunities 
Tor the Laity, through local or district retreats, youth happenings, Lay Witness Missions, and 
>ther lay movements. 

Bill Marley, Chairman 

Report No. 3 
The Commission on Stewardship and Finance 

tor Conference Commission on Stewardship and Finance is an integral part of the newly 
!ted structure of the United Methodist Church, and its duties are "abbreviated," if not 
[led out, in the title - "STEWARDSHIP AND FINANCE," The scope of its field, just as its 
Intialities, is limited only by the extent of dedication and determination on the part of its 
w appointed members in carrying out their responsibilities, as consecrated Christian laymen 

> themselves are both exponents and practitioners of STEWARDSHIP in the use and sharing 
heir time, talents and possessions. 

Inning the current conference year, the Commission on Stewardship and Finance has 
|'ided leadership and instruction in workshops on the subject, at the United Methodist Men 

eat, and Summer R and R, at Methodist College, in instructional sessions on Lay Speaker 



292 North Carolina Annual Conference 

training, before Methodist Men organizations, in worship services at local churches, and hi 
offered its services (and sought advice and assistance) through letters to district directors an' 
chairmen of Stewardship and Finance and Stewardship Education. Much of the successfij: 
accomplishment in this field is credited to our dedicated Conference Business Manager aiK 
Treasurer for his beyond-the-call service, across our conference, in speaking before groups anv 
lending inspiration and guidance on the subject. Our abiding gratitude is extended to Chark-L 
McAdams, and to Walter Anderson and others for their dedicated and unselfish service. 

While the Commission Chairman is in nowise content with achievements during the currer. 
year, it is well to point out that at least several hundred leaders among the laity in Nort] 
Carolina Methodism have been "exposed" to instruction and up-date counsel and advice oi 
the subject and, thereby, some good has been accomplished and progress made. 

It is hoped a visitation schedule with district leaders across the Conference, in each districi; 
may be activated and that, through the use and application of recommended education,; 
materials, a definite and continuing program may be started, in district and sub-distrk; 
meetings with both clergy and laity, to the end that every local church may be represented am 
inspired to practice and teach stewardship. 

It is the fervent hope and prayer of the Commission that its efforts may serve to re-cre?». r 
within its members, and in the Board of the Laity and the Conference, a renewed sense [1 
Christian dedication and responsibility sufficient to continue the program set forth by oi 
predecessors and that together we shall come to realize more fully our duties and privileges I 
Christian laymen in the awareness that God is the owner of all of life, that each individui 
human being is the Steward of all that God has entrusted to him, and that each person mus 
give an accounting of his Stewardship - his time, his talents, and his material possessions. 

To activate the necessary programs and to motivate others to help carry the Word, we nee 
but recall to mind the Scriptural admonition of our Lord and Master when he reminded h 
followers that "the fields are white unto harvest, but the laborers are few."

Journal of Proceedings 293 

Hie Committee on the Lay Worker calls the attention of the Annual Conference and 
ecially the attention of Local Churches employing lay workers to Par. 507.1; the retirement 
n of the Lay Employee Pension Fund (Par. 1377.12); or other such appropriate plan as 
»vided by the Board of Pensions." (This refers to the General Board of Pensions). For the 
e of uniformity we recommend that the Pension Plan for Lay Workers in the North Carolina 
taference be based upon an annual contribution of 9% of the employee's salary - 6% to be 
d by the employing agent and 3% by the employee (or some combination of percentages to 
& up to 9%). 

We encourage local churches employing lay workers to pay the premiums for the Blue 
Blue Shield Insurance plan; and participate, in their behalf, in the Conference program of 
aup Life Insurance. 

W Committee on the Lay Worker also calls upon all local churches within her bounds to 
vide a pension program, as well as hospitalization and life insurance, for ALL LAY 
IPLOYEES - not only those who qualify as lay workers. 

ks a member of the SPECIAL INSURANCE COMMITTEE, we call to your attention its 
»ort and trust you will vote in favor. 

We are happy to have some small part in organizing this Committee this Quadrennium, and 
ping it along as far as it is now.

THE METHODIST FOUNDATION , INC. 

For some it is difficult to realize that the Methodist Foundation will soon complete its 
en teen th year of operation. Estimated annual income is now in excess of $180,000.00. The 
id is a balanced one - performing in a very acceptable manner - having withstood some 
her serious market pressure from time to time. 

rhrough the years there have been many individuals who have contributed to this unique and 
cessful means of handling Conference reserves. The names of Hood, Brauer, Cowell, 
thaway, Garber, Jordan, Dozier, Gibson, Hubbard, McAdams and others come to mind when 
affairs of the Methodist Foundation are discussed. To these gentlemen and others the North 
rolina Conference can look with pride at the stewardship of the funds entrusted to them. 
IThere is every reason to believe that this fund will continue to perform favorably during the 
Jning year. Our continued purpose will be to "earn all we can - save all we can - give away 
we can." 

S. L. Gulledge, Jr., President 



DEPARTMENT OF GIFTS AND WILLS 

ye are convinced that our church moves through the gifts of people who love God and wish 
onor Him through their gifts. These gifts come from the abundance that people have who 
i to extend their Christian lives through their giving. 

,/e have planned more emphasis on giving for Scholarship Funds. We have placed emphasis 
Vlinisterial Scholarship Funds because the church demands educated leadership, and young 
pie who answer the call to be a minister in the United Methodist Church need assistance in 
an education. Eight of our funds set up in the Department of Gifts and Wills have been 
in the past three years. We will see as the years unfold the soundness of our investment 
his Department of Gifts and Wills. 

ft have added two funds to our department this Conference year. The first one is known as 
Myra Morris Campership Fund" and was established by The Committee on Camping 
istry of the Conference Board of Education. The second fund is the John C. Brauer Trust 
lid which was established through the will of Dr. Brauer. Dr. Brauer was one of the fust 
hbers of the Department of Gifts and Wills. This is the kind of gift from a consecrated 
Jstian leader who will live in the years to come because of his love of God and concern for 
Srs. We have been in consultation concerning other Scholarship Funds. This field is a 



294 North Carolina Annual Conference 

growing one, in which more people are becoming interested in and are thus, participating in thel 
growth of these funds. 

We will have two scholarships from the Pittman-Frizzelle Fund to award this year, and twoij 
Ministerial Scholarships for the first time. One of these is from the Cobb-Evans Ministerial[ 
Scholarship Fund, and the other is from the Reverend Ralph E. Fowlkes, Jr. Memorial! 
Scholarship Fund. All of our funds have grown this year: we have had additional gifts added to!, 
the principal and we have had our best year in our wills. We have been able to assist more!, 
people who have sought our help and counsel and were pleased that many of these have placed!, 
the church and its institutions in their wills. 

We have been fortunate in having Mrs. Gwendolyn Mayes as our secretary to the directors of, 
the Department of Gifts and Wills. She has given to us outstanding service in her contacts and! 
knowledge of people and has supplied information that was needed to make the right 
approaches for our contact with people. All of us wish to express our love and appreciation fori 
the noble service rendered to each of us. 

We are grateful to have had the leadership and talent of Mr. I. Lee Parker, Jr., as chairman of 
our Department of Gifts and Wills. He is working for his church and its causes. The years wilji 
reveal his devotion as our work comes into fruition for the Kingdom of God. 

STEWARDSHIP AND TITHING 

Stewardship is a spiritual experience. It has its relationship in the beginning with God. We! 
come to our relationship through His gift of life and the sustaining power of life; we have the* 
opportunity to cooperate in this experience of stewardship by our acts of giving as a5 
partnership with Him. We come to share a spiritual responsibility for all of life, and we witness: I 
to this spiritual experience by our gifts as well as by our proclamations. There are two beliefs* 
that govern our stewardship. First, is the one I have referred to in our love and responsibilities* 
to our Heavenly Father. The second guiding principle is in the needs of other people. In these ( 
two principles many of us are aware of our stewardship. We give out of our love for what Godr 
has done for us through Christ and because of compassion for others. The United Methodist* 
Church has asked that we give at least a tithe as an expression of our love for God and oui»- 
concern for others. 

We have mailed the following materials in 1972: January, "Your Guide to Effective Giving! 
1972;" February, "27 Things the Pastor Can Do to Encourage Bequests;" March, "Stewardship! 
and Effective Giving;" April, "The State Has Made your Will.' We have supplied over 1 0,000 1 
pieces of material this year for use in the local churches. We have continued to find people who, 
are willing to make gifts and to place our interests in their wills. 

The Raleigh District under the leadership of Reverend Kermit L. Braswell, the Director old 
Stewardship for the Raleigh District, secured the approval of Reverend J. W. Page, District* 
Superintendent, and the Raleigh District Program Council, to conduct sub-district meetings o% 
stewardship. The emphasis was "WHAT COULD HAPPEN IF OUR LOCAL CHURCHES; 
FOLLOWED THROUGH ON THEIR EVERY-MEMBER COMMITMENT." The program o% 
stewardship, as was promoted through the Every-Member Commitment at the Westover Unitedr 
Methodist Church under the direction of the pastor, was explained step by step in their 
Every-Member Commitment for the budget of the church. These workshops were wellr 
attended, and we believe that much good in the form of information and inspiration was made' 
available to those in attendance. I was able to work with Mr. Braswell and Mr. Page in thesev 
meetings, and I feel that it was a worthwile project. 

Reverend J. W. Page, District Superintendent of the Raleigh District, promoted sub-district 
meetings to explain the One-Figure Asking for this year with special emphasis on the Pension 
plan that was adopted at the Special Session of Annual Conference. Mr. Page had the following' 
persons to help him in his presentations: Kermit L. Braswell, J. Ed Legates, L. Merritt Jones 
Charles K. McAdams, N. W. Grant and O. L. Hathaway. These sub-district meetings were welldi 
attended, and the people were given an opportunity to ask questions concerning the proposed 
budget for the Raleigh District. There was a great deal of interest in the meetings and a very/j 
warm spiritual atmosphere was created by those who participated in the work. 

PERCENTAGE GIVING AND THE TITHE 

This year our church through the Board of the Laity used the month of October as a time of 
study for special emphasis on Stewardship and Tithing. A further suggestion was made that' 



Journal of Proceedings 295 

portumties be given our people in November and December to practice tithing. We have some 
)orts from churches that have worked faithfully towards getting their people to tithe. We 
lieve that our people may be led to give a percentage of their income, and encouraged from 
ir to year to raise their giving until they reach the tithe or more. We should be looking at this 
a long-range program, and at the same time moving forward as rapidly as our people will 
ept the tithe as a minimum gift. 

We are indebted to our Bishop, William R. Cannon, the District Superintendents, District 
ectors of Stewardship, District Directors of Gifts and Wills, and the pastors and laymen who 
re helped us in meeting these people who are extending their lives through their gifts. We 
y for the continuance of this excellent relationship so that we may help you and our people 
do a better Christian work for the expansion of the Kingdom of God.

THE METHODIST MINISTERS CREDIT UNION 

When our Conference held its last session in Trinity Methodist Church back in 1961, 
thodist Ministers Credit Union made the largest headlines in its history. The second section 
the Morning Herald carried a streamer: "Money Changers In The Temple." A reporter had 
knd a table in the hallway of the educational building where our Credit Union was doing the 
;t business in twenty-three years. 

(t was in that hallway that our assets passed the $10,000.00 mark. It was there that we sold 
t- first Estate Contract or Loan. This was an unbelievable report for some who watched our 
Mit Union through the years. 

JvJow we are back, changing money in the temple - this time not so literally as before, but 
| the same purpose - to help our parsonage families practice thrift. Thrift is more than the 
Ictice of saving. It is the wise use of credit and the prudent and productive use of that which 
hes into our possession. 

Vhereas we were struggling to reach $10,000.00 in 1961, we are now, eleven years later, 
ching for $500,000.00, and it is within our reach. We closed the month of May with 
85,631.01 in assets, and we are growing in June. 

rhe use of the Estate Loan plan has been a great help in this growth. We invite you seriously 

consider using it. On a $2,000.00 contract, which is the largest we write on any one life, the 

Srower pays interest of $190.60 over a period of thirty-six months. This loan is covered by 

Loan Protection Insurance Policy, not only against death but also, total and permanent 

bility without any cost above the interest which is a true 6% APR. The $2,000.00 in shares 

based with the borrowed funds is matched by $2,000.00 Life Insurance, which has a 

100.00 double indemnity rider and a $2,000.00 accidental loss of sight and dismemberment 

. This insurance is provided for the shareholder by the Credit Union from its earnings. This 

addition to the 4 1/2% per annum dividend that we have paid for several years. Dividends 

ed at this rate give the Estate Loan holder a profit of $91.55 in dividends after repaying 

for all the interest paid on his note. This is a bargain that is too good to miss. This year 

dded $8,240.80 to our reserve fund to protect the shares you have bought. This was more 

l twice the legal requirement. We are stronger, too, because we have been able to repay 

,000.00 in borrowed money. 

here are several firsts we have achieved since last Conference that are worthy of note: 

On March 9, 1972, our Credit Union moved out of the treasurer's home for the first time. 
ow has a suite of three rooms at 743 W. Johnson Street, Raleigh, N. C. Come visit us there. 
1. Our Credit Union was chosen as the depository for the building funds of one of our 
ted Methodist Churches. We invite you to do likewise. 

•. We received the largest gift of our history. One of our retired ministers gave us $500.00 to 
to our loan funds to be used for the good of his brother ministers. This kind of generosity 
concern for others is to be praised. Many others have helped in other ways, and a few have 
l in the past but never in so large an amount. Thank you, brother. 

j. This month is to be used to enroll our borrowers in the new "Credit Disability" program 
> offered by our Credit Union in cooperation with our insurance carrier, CUNA Mutual 
ranee Society. This coverage will protect the borrower in case of temporary incapacity

THE BOARD OF MISSIONS 

Faithfulness to the Gospel, flexibility in approach and willingness to be innovative have be 
the characteristics of the work of the Conference Board of Missions during the final year of i 
1968-72 quadrennium. As our Annual Conference demographic patterns change, the patte 
and procedures of groups working within the Conference must change. Without neglect of' 
rural church, the growing number of urban and semi-urban churches requires methods of w< 
different from those in years past. These changes are reflected in this report. 

The work of this Board is done primarily through committee structures and the report of :| 
Board is presented to reflect that structure. 

Edward F. Smith, President 
Amos H. Stone, Secretary 

COMMITTEE ON EDUCATION AND CULTIVATION 

Rufus H. Stark II, Chairman 
The committee seeks to hold before the churches of our Annual Conference the cause of 
corporate mission of Christ as He reaches through the United Methodist Church, in order ti 
this cause may be a matter of major priority. To that end the committee has functionec [ 
several ways this year. 
1. District Mission Rallies 

In November each of our District Program Councils planned a rally at which I 
personnel of our General Board Staff in New York, along with representatives from our anri 
conference Board made presentations. 

A. Purpose: To build a base of confidence in each other as we share in mission; to pro\j 
an opportunity to know first hand General Board Staff Personnel; to provide clear informatl 
on the Advance and to encourage response. 

B. Personnel: 

Rev. Joseph W. Walker, Director of the Advance of the General Board of Missicl 
Rev. Billy Starnes, a Director of the Advance assigned to the Southeastern 

Jurisdiction. 
Rev. Avery Manchester, Secretary of the General Board of Mission Committee | . 

Missionary Personnel. 



Journal of Proceedings 997 

Rev. John Jordan, Executive Secretary of the Office of University World of the 

National Division of the General Board. 
Dr. Richard Nesmith, Executive Secretary of Planning and Strategy for the National 

Division of the General Board. 
Results : 

1. A total of 1325 attended the eleven rallies. 

2. The attendance included a healthy mix of decision makers from local churches 
with about equal numbers of men and women and twenty per cent youth. 

3. The spirit of those attending was open and for the most part enthusiastic. 

4. A total of forty-five churches requested specifice helf in arranging an Advance 
program. 200 persons joined the Ten-Dollar Club Phase II. 



Preparation for Church-Wide Studies. 

Tie "District Directors of Mission led the several District Program Councils in effective 
ining for the training of workers in leading the church-wide studies in Africa, Technetics, 
The Gospel of Matthew. 1404 persons attended sessions for the purpose in ten of our 
ricts. 

fhese studies are important not only to the corporate mission of our church, but to the 
ale work that we do together. 
Itineration. 

tineration of Missions ipterpreters has been most successful this year. Those participating 
e: 

Rev. George C. Megill, Brazil, in Wilmington and Sanford Districts. 
Rev. Milton H. Robinson, Bolivia, in the Fayetteville and Goldsboro Districts. 
Mrs. Milton H. Robinson, Bolivia, in the Elizabeth City and Rocky Mount Districts. 
Rev. Albert F. Whelchel, Congo, in Greenville and Raleigh Districts. 
Dr. Pearle McClain. China, in the Burlington and Durham Districts. 
Rev. Clyde Dunn, Taiwan, in the New Bern District. 
Advance Response . 
Advance support of the corporate mission of the church has been made more of a priority 
year in our Conference. The Fall Mission Rallies and the Advance work sheets used in each 
trict are already having an effect. As of March 29, $50,444 had been received on General 
Vance specials as compared to $36,110 this date last year. We are encouraged at this trend, 
,: not satisfied. Our potential is much greater than this. 
! Appreciation . 

ft is appropriate that the District Directors of Mission be recognized for their outstanding 
Jership. They are: George W. Johnson, N. H. Byrd, J. C. Chaffin, N. B. Hill, Jr., Dr. Lee 
ams, J. C. P. Brown, P. D. Midgett, III, J. T. Smith, Lawrence Lugar, Paul Bunn and C. H. 
wborn. 



THE COMMITTEE ON ADVANCE 

Paul G. Bunn, Chairman 

Advance giving continues to increase under direct promotion by the Conference Missionary 
Wary, Rufus Stark, the Program Council, the Cabinet and Bishop, the Board of Missions 
mbers, the Advance Committee, and the District Missionary Chairmen. Also, in order to aid 
die promotion of the Advance Program, we held Advance rallies in all eleven districts with 
konnel from the New York office. The North Carolina Conference will become a leader in 
vance in the Southeast in the near future. Our perspective broadens yearly in the area of 
vance concern. For this we thank God! 

}n the world scene we are glad to be able to report that all of our missionaries from the 
rth Carolina Conference now have full salary support. We are beginning to help support 
tsionaries from other conferences. 



298 North Carolina Annual Conference 

Likewise, we have raised a large amount through the Ten Dollar Club-Phase II for neijH 
churches in Salisbury, Rhodesia. P 

A new Hospital-Dispensary is being built in Botswana, Africa. We are giving $10,000.00 foit c 
that cause. 

The new Ten Dollar Club-Phase II is growing. We shall send one call annually to a new church) 
situation overseas. In 1973 the call will go to South America (Brazil). We also aid in buildinj, 
one new church each year in our own North Carolina Conference. Also, we give special help tcL 
churches with special need. We now have 1,244 members of the Phase II Ten Dollar Club. 

We have given the following amounts for these special Advance causes:

CHURCH AND COMMUNITY COMMITTEE 

Reginald W. Ponder, Chairman 

SUB-COMMITTEE ON PARISH DEVELOPMENT AND COMMUNITY SERVICE 
Charles E. Owens, Chairman 

People in churches of small membership tend to become disillusioned and despondent, with 
no sense of achievement. This situation is caused in part by the inadequate pastoral leadership 
of the "not-yets, the rejects, and the has-beens." In a time when the mark of success has been, 
for the church to become a station appointment, local church resources have been insufficient, 
to provide adequate monetary support for the pastor, for local church ministry, and for 
ministry beyond the local church. 

We affirm that every Methodist has a right to expect leadership which can help people 
develop an adequate program in every parish, making available those experiences which will, 
enable Methodist people to grow together in Christ and engage in significant ministry to the* 
community in His name. 

We have striven toward this goal through a recovery and understanding of "Parish" 
(Discipline, Par. 106.3), and through cooperative ministries we have made more adequate 
deployment of lay and pastoral leadership in a few areas of our conference. We must cooperatej 
as Methodist people in order to realize our full potential as the people of God. Cooperation 
must "nt be thought of negatively, as a "last-ditch" survival gimmick, but should be 
forward-looking the banding of the strong and the weak, where each learns from the other aSj 
they grow together in love and service in the family of God. Increasingly we must focus our 
vision horizontally toward neighboring churches, linking resources to meet common needs. 

During this Quadrennium we have seen the establishment of the following cooperative 
ministries: 

Pamlico Parish 

Salemburg 

Moore County 

Harnett County 

Robeson County Church and Community Center 

Each of these efforts is differenct, and there is no one way to organize for ministry. Thci 
important thing is that structure must be responsive to and serve the needs of the people in the 
situation where they are. Today we have four Church and Community Workers engaged in 
ministry in our Conference through parish organization. 



Journal of Proceedings 299 

Through the United Methodist Parish Fellowship retreats each year emphasis has been given 
iward developing understanding of the parish concept and toward re-training pastors to serve 
cooperation with other pastors, rather than in competition with them. 

SUB-COMMITTEE ON TOWN AND COUNTRY WORK 
Leo C. Thompson, Chairman 
The work of the Sub-Committee on Town and Country Work during the 1968-72 
juadrennium has focused in three primary areas: (1) Recognition of excellent achievement in 
^lall churches. (2) Provision of training experiences for ministers and laymen from small 
lurches. (3) Development of a long-range program to encourage laymen and ministers in small 
lurches to cooperate across charge boundaries in the implementation of mission to their areas. 

At the Chapel Hill Conference in 1969, seven rural churches were honored for excellent 

rvice to their communities with an appropriate certificate and a $50 award (listed in 1969 
mrnal, pages 128-129). Again, in 1970 at the Greenville Conference, seven rural churches were 
bnored in the same manner (listed in 1970 Journal, page 134). In 1972 at the Durham 
pnference, one outstanding church in the entire Conference will be honored for its 
ltstanding achievement (without monetary award). 

Throughout the Quadrennium, the Committee has encouraged laymen and ministers from 
pery district to participate in a wide variety of training experiences designed to equip them 
tillfully to develop patterns of cooperation across charge boundaries. A large delegation of 
inisters and laymen were present at the Jurisdiction's Quadrennial Conference on Town and 
ountry Work at Lake Junaluska, August 11-15, 1969. Expenses were paid by the Committee 
hich has sponsored a sizable delegation of ministers and laymen to the Annual Meeting of the 
ellowship of Town and Country Leaders of the Southeast at the Hinton Rural Life Center, 
ayesville, each year during the quadrennium (October 21-24, 1969; October 21-23, 1970; and 
ctober 11-14, 1971). This experience has begun the training of a nucleus of skilled leaders in 
jr Conference who are beginning to provide more excellent leadership in the development of 
:>operative patterns. In addition, the Committee has assisted the United Methodist Parish 
fellowship in the sponsoring of annual retreats (February 3-8,1969, in Williamston, 
ayetteville, and Warsaw; March 30-31, 1970, at Chestnut Ridge, with Dr. Daniel Zeluff from 
Uerpreter's House as leader; February 22-23, 1971, at Raleigh and Kinston, with Dr. Melvin 
lest from Missouri as leader; and February 28-29, 1972, with Dr. Marvin Judy from Dallas as 
ader). Each of these retreats has provided excellent training opportunities. 
' The Committee has also assisted in the development of possibilities for specific parishes 

roughout the Conference. During 1969-70, approximately $16,000 was set aside in the Board 
Missions to be directed toward newly organized parishes. "Guidelines for Parish 

;velopment Grants" were extablished and grants were made to parishes in Pamlico and Wayne 
aunties. A similar grant was made during 1971-72 to the parish in Harnet County. Close 
jipervision has been given in each of these parishes. Finally, the Committee was instrumental in 

tting up a Cabinet Consultation with Dr. Marvin Judy on March 1, 1972. Out of this 
bnsultation a Committee on Conference Policy for Parish Development was appointed by the 
abinet to provide adequate guidelines and policies during the 1972-76 quadrennium. This 
bmmittee will finalize these guidelines by the time of Annual Conference on June 5, 1972. 

The over-all result of the Committee's work has been the development of wider 
iderstanding and acceptance of the need for and necessity of cooperative patterns of work 
Itoss charge boundaries and the realistic provision of guidelines and policies by which such 
pishes may be implemented across our Conference during the 1972-76 quadrennium. It has 
Jen a joy to serve in the area of our concern. 

SUB-COMMITTEE ON URBAN MINISTRIES 
Wallace H. Kirby , Chairman 
In July, 1971, the Conference Board of Missions, on recommendation of the Urban 

Iimmittee and in cooperation with the National Board of Missions, entered into a contract 
th Complex, Inc. of Raleigh. Complex was to help urban churches discover creative options 
r mission and to assist in such missions with resources and training. The committee met with 
implex on numerous occasions and tried to relay some of the needs it felt churches in urban 
,'eas had. Suggestions were made for surveys, a directory of urban agencies, training events, and 
dier possible actions. It was apparent, after six months, that Complex was not fulfilling any of 



300 North Carolina Annual Conference 

these needs. Some work was done in Greenville through the Ministerial Association, in whicll 
Complex helped that organization see the need for such things as day-care, food and nutritioni 
and a revised bail system. The committee felt at a loss in directing Complex in its work, and ii| 
the interest of stewardship terminated the contract on December 31, 1971. 

The committee has had dialogue tas a committee and individually) with men engaged irj 
urban ministries in Greensboro, Charlotte, Birmingham, Memphis, and Atlanta. It realizes tha | 
such a ministry must be initiated within the urban area and stands ready to assist such areas a 
Durham, Raleigh, Fayetteville, Greenville, and Wilmington. The Center City Ministry ii| 
Durham and the Contact Ministry in Fayetteville are beginnings. 



THE NORTH CAROLINA COUNCIL OF CHURCHES 

In the North Carolina Council of Churches we have resisted the temptation, with the whol<j 
spectrum of challenges before us, to attempt too much. With a staff of four people one o- 
whom is half-time (not including the Migrant Project) we necessarily have limited ourselves t( 
timely priorities. 

The reorganization of two years ago began to take effect in the summer of 1970 witlj 
excellent results. The concept of "shared staff is very effective in the Commission on ChristiarJ 
Nurture and to a lesser degree in the other two commissions. The intention throughout is t<| 
involve in our work the key people from our member judicatories in each program area. 

Collins Kilburn and Otis Hairston are giving great leadership to the Commission on Christian 
Social Ministries. The recent Church and Community Seminar must be rated as excellent fo: 
program. Splended responses are being made in the fields of corrections and criminal justice antj 
of welfare reform. State government and legislature and peace education and action an] 
emphases of this commission. Close cooperation is given the Commission on Religion ii 
Appalachia in its Social, Economic, and Political Issues Task Force and the Appalachian Missior 
Renewal Project. 

W. H. Shipes directs the North Carolina Council of Churches Migrant Project which i:J 
booming under his leadership. This work relates directly to the Commission on Christian Socia 
Ministries. 

John Cobb has given intelligent and faithful leadership to the Commission on Christiai | 
Nurture. Among the priorities there the chief ones are child care, youth hostels, aging* 
leadership training, and family life. The Task Force on Child Care, led by William McElveen ha:i 
drawn together more than thirty experts. The first federated youth hostel in North Carolin; 
will be in operation this summer at Linville. 

James Riddle is giving imaginative guidance to the Commission on Christian Unity in a time 
when some people in the churches challenge not only councils of churches but all organ izatior. 
of religion. I am urging that strong emphasis be put upon local ecumenism-it must be local I 
order to be real. This commission, in connection with its interest in Faith and Order, i: 
projecting one or more local pilot conferences this year on polarization in church anc 
community. 

The Executive Director serves as staff for Christian Nurture and Christian Unity. Othe: 
programs coming under the Durham office are finance, the Pastors' Conference and annua 
Assembly, the Richard Shelton Communications Awards, the Advisory Conference, The Church 
Council Bulletin, the Church World Service Clothing Appeal in North Carolina, and the Migran 
Ministry. 

It is immensely heartening to see that the annual giving of the Council's member bodies has 
increased from $14,000 in 1963 to $35,000 in 1971, a rise of 150%. This very favorable 
development, however, has been more than matched by the demands of inflation and a growing 
program. The asking of the Council of each of its member bodies continues to be only 1/10 oi 
1% of each group's annual giving to current expenses and benevolences, excluding capita 
building funds. In 1971 such allocations should have produced over $61,000 instead ol 1 
$35,000, thus requiring special efforts to raise $9,400 from individual churches and donors 
The skeletal budget for 1972 will still require $7,900 from these special sources. There is a 
program of gift annuities developed by the National Council of Churches whereby arj 
ecumenical agency such as our State Council may be beneficiary in a plan that provides. 



Journal of Proceedings

ntinuing income for the donor. One or two generous gift annuities of this sort could make 
e difference for us in 1972. 

As an economy and efficiency measure the nearly 7000 names on the Council's mailing list 
ve been put on a computer. By resulting reduction in office staff this will make it possible to 
me within the modest budget of $50,0U0 */ individual contributions come in. 
The President and the Executive Director called together evangelism people from the 
iember judicatories to discuss Key '73 resulting in plans for continuing state-wide strategy in 
leparation for next year. This will be brought directly under the Executive Board as a 
jticular concern of the Council through 1972 and '73, with the expectation that strong, 
ried, and continuing cooperative outreach will be in the churches' agenda at the beginning of 
•74.

PUBLIC RELATIONS AND METHODIST INFORMATION 

The Conference Director of Methodist Information reports the following activities for tli 
1971-72 Conference Year. 

-I- 

The 1971-72 North Carolina Conference Pictorial Directory was made possible through tl' 
cooperation of the Pictorial Church Directories of America. The Directory was mailed to tl' 
company headquarters in St. Louis and although no proofing was done locally and tl 
company was responsible for printing make-up, we believe it is a valuable instrument 
enabling our ministers to know each other. 

We are grateful to PCA for making this Directory available. A minimum number of copij 
are available for lay leaders and local church libraries. 

-II- 

The Director has worked during the year in helping to initiate a Committee 
Communications. District Directors were appointed to work in the area of communicatior 
particularly in assisting local churches. A number of tapes were available to local congregation 
of Bishop Cannon's statement at the 1971 Annual Conference regarding the creation ofi 
twelfth district and the appointment of a black district superintendent. We asked the locj 
congregations to utilize this tape in helping prepare our laity for this important step. Distrii 
communications chairmen were also asked to monitor reports of the 1972 General Conferen? 
in Atlanta. 

-III- 

The General Conference in April, 1972, was given special coverage by your Director. 
media-TV, Radio, and Press-were alerted and special reports were filed daily. 

The 1972 Annual Conference publicity was also planned as was preliminary news covera) 
for the July, 1972, Jurisdictional Conference at Lake Junaluska. 

The Director would like particularly to thank (a) the 74-radio stations of the Tobac^ 
Radio Network; (b) Radio Stations WPTF in Raleigh and WDNC in Durham for their spec- 
"extended" news coverage; (c) The Raleigh Bureau of United Press International; (d) t 
Carolinas Bureau of Associated Press in Charlotte; (e) and the Durham Morning Herald t

THE METHODIST BOARD OF PUBLICATION, INC. 

Your board has been in continuous operation since 1919 when its certificate of 
borporation was issued. Prior to that, the North Carolina Christian Advocate, established in 
55, has served the Methodists of the state under several names and in a variety of 
»anizational relationships. 
The papers of incorporation of The Methodist Board of Publication state in part: 

"The object of this corporation shall be to publish the North Carolina 
Christian Advocate as the official organ of the North Carolina and Western 
North Carolina Conferences of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and 
to have control of the publishing Interest of the aforesaid Conferences. It 
may publish one or more newspapers and periodicals by any name desired, 
and may publish, handle, purchase and sell all kinds of books, tracts, 
treatises and pamphlets. It shall also have the power and authority to cany 
on in all its branches a general publishing and printing business." 

A further provision states that "the North Carolina and Western North Carolina Conferences 
iill be and are equal and joint owners of said corporation, and that said corporation shall be 
I'der the jurisdiction, control and direction of said Conferences". 

|rhe basic provisions of this venerable document still remain as a missional mandate for the 
'thodist Board of Publication. We are seeking to fulfill this mandate mainly through the 
fiitinuing publication of the North Carolina Christian Advocate and through the operation of 
[general publishing and printing business" under the trade name of the Piedmont Press. 
I The circulation of the Advocate has during the past year maintained a steady average of 
Lhtly over 22,000. We are continuing to stress the importance of our local church officials 
pmbers of All-Administrative Boards) taking and reading the Advocate. We feel that every 
hrch official elected to an important office in the church has a responsibility to become a 
HU-informed leader. The Advocate is in a unique position to enable such officials to fulfill this 
iiigation. This is especially true in view of the fact that the Advocate carries an eight-page 
»tion once a month giving information prepared by the Conference Program Council on 
hortant events and programs coming up. A separate edition of this supplement is provided 
E the North Carolina and Western North Carolina Annual Conferences. This information as 
HI as much other material carried is of vital importance to local church leaders. 

.Ve believe that the local church should assume the cost involved in such an informational 
^•gram, or at very least that it should work out some plan whereby the members of its 
flministrative Board become subscribers. We commend the more than 400 churches which are 
3 the plan and urgently request all other churches to set it up for their church officials. 

Vhile setting forth the All-Administrative Board Plan as of vital importance, we further 
Sommend to our churches that they move ~ne step further and adopt the Every-Family 
Ascription Plan. An informed and enlightened church will be without doubt a better church, 
lb North Carolina Christian Advocate going into every United Methodist home cannot but be 
biositive asset, and may well be a key factor in lifting the level of that church's life. 
[Ve are continuing to improve the facilities and equipment in our printing establishment, 
firing the last four months we have leased cold composition equipment for more rapid 
Besetting. This is enabling us to produce a cleaner printed page and to do it much more 
fsidly. 



304 North Carolina Annual Conference 

As a non-profit corporation owned and operated by the United Methodist Church in North 
Carolina, we are not actively soliciting business from the general public. However, we do urge 
our Methodist institutions, boards and agencies, and local churches to patronize The Piedmont 
Press for their printing needs. Our present modern equipment and well-trained personnel make 
it possible for us to offer good quality work a reasonable rates. Moreover, all profits from the 
operation The Piedmont Press go toward meeting editorial and other expenses connected with 
the production of the North Carolina Christian Advocate. It makes good sense, therefore, for 
our United Methodist Organizations, where there is no clear reason to the contrary, to give their i 
printing to our own printing establishment. 

C. P. Morris, President 

J. C Stokes, Editor and Manager 



THE COMMISSION ON RELIGION AND RACE 

A Commission on Religion and Race was established during this Conference year. 

The purpose of the Commission shall be to become the "Conscience" of the Conference in 
all matters concerning race. The programs and projects developed by this Commission shall 1 
speak to the problems of racism (attitudinal, behavioral and institutional) and minority group 
empowerment. The Commission will be so organized that there is both flexibility and structure I 
to enable the Conference to deal with these problems as they are expressed in the life of the 
Conference. Until all members of the United Methodist Church of every race are able to 
participate fully in all structures, organizations, and decision processes, of the Conference, the 
word "United" will be a goal rather than a reality. The task of the Conference Commission on 
Religion and Race is to help make this a reality. 

The Commission members attended a Consultation on Race, sponsored by The Board of 
Christian Social Concerns, led by members of the National Commission on Religion and Race. 
Additionally, the Commission held a consultation/training session for its members and selected 
persons at Highland United Methodist Church. The Commission offered its services to the J 
Conference to assist in problems in the area of race relations and in the acceptance of a Black 
District Superintendent. 

The Commission realizes that there is much to be done to reconcile the differing attitudes 
between races, in acceptance and empowerment of minorities, and has programmed its activities 
for the year 1972-73 accordingly.

At the June 2 meeting the following officers were elected: Elisha M. Herndon, Chain 
The Reverend Wallace H. Kirby, Vice-Chairman ; The Reverend James H. Miller, Jr., Secrel 

During the Conference year extensive maintenance and repair work was done to 
headquarters parsonages under the supervision of Mr. McAdams. This work has inch 
air-conditioning, painting, interior decorating, lawn work and many other items. 

During the year the Methodist Church property at Portsmouth Village on Portsmi 
Island was sold to the State of North Carolina for the sum of $6,500.00. The property 
become part of the Cape Lookout National Seashore in the National Park Service. A specia

THE BOARD OF COLLEGE VISITORS 

The Board of College Visitors made its annual visits to the colleges in our Conference 
in the month of March. We were impressed by reports of slight increases of new students, b 
financial pictures than past years, and more attractive educational programs. 

The Three-Track Curriculum at N. C. Wesleyan probably moves our college at R 
Mount a decade ahead of comparable schools in the southeast. The O'Hanlon Amphifheat! 
Methodist College was dedicated in November, and it will enhance the religious, dramatic, 
musical programs on our campus at Fayetteville. 

The relationships between administration, faculty, and students is wholesome with re 
for and consideration of each other, and all continue to seek closer ties with their respe 
communities. The one greatest and unanimously voiced need by these three elements o 
colleges is the cultivation and and recruitment of Methodist students by local pastor;] 
congregations in the North Carolina Conference. 

Finally, we are grateful to our colleges for their achievements and assure them o | 
support in strengthening their Christian uniqueness and their task of education in our day.

B. Annual Conference Structure 

In its meeting on May 22, 1972, the Executive Committee of the Conference Prog) 
Council voted unanimously to make the following recommendations concerning 
structure of the Conference: 
1. That The North Carolina Conference restructure its boards and agencies to coini 

with the structure adopted by the 1972 General Conference for the General Chu 

Level. In order to achieve this we recommend the following: 

(a) That we change terminology in the naming of our various agencies to th 
designations used on the General Level. 

(b) That we limit the number of members to be nominated for various boards 
agencies. 

(1) In cases where adequate representation of all groups cannot be secured in 
alloted number of members, at-large members shall be added to accomp 
the above goal. 

(2) District Superintendents shall be members of all Program Boards. 

(3) One Superintendent shall be assigned to each Division of a Board by 
Presiding Bishop in consultation with the Director of the Conference Con 
on Ministries. The Superintendent shall be a member of the Execu, 
Committee of the Division. 

(4) Extreme care shall be exercised by the Cabinet in making nomination! 
various Boards, Divisions and other agencies so as to insure adeqi 
representation of the following groups: ethnic minorities, women, n 
youth and clergy. 

(5) In instances in which two persons are to be nominated from a district tc 
agency, we recommend that one be lay and one be clergy. 

(6) In order to insure equal district representation on agencies throughout 
quadrennium we recommend that when a pastor is moved from tne distriC| 
which he or she received his or her nomination to a board or agency, to 
she will be replaced on the board or agency by another person resit 
within that district. 

(7) The above recommendation concerning change of residence does not ap< 
to the elected officers of boards or agencies. Should their residences 



Journal of Proceedings 309 



changed, they remain as officers; however, the district from which they 

move will nominate a successor to maintain district representation. 
(8) In district nominations consideration should be given to the possibility of 

using the District Board or Agency nominee as the representative on the 

District Council on Ministries, 
(c) That the terminology of the Council Charter be changed to coincide with the 
above recommendations.

REPORT OF THE NORTH CAROLINA 
UNITED METHODIST COMMISSION 
ON CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR MINISTERS 
The Statewide Commission on Continuing Education for Ministers, representing the North 
olina and the Western North Carolina Conferences of The United Methodist Church and The 
:e Divinity School, operates as the coordinator for existing programs, recommends addi- 
al projects, and designates responsibilities to participating agencies. The Commission sin- 
gly appreciates the support of the Episcopal leaders, the Dean of The Duke Divinity School, 
the Annual Conference Committees on Continuing Education. 

The Commission supports the Conference Committee in its specific recommendations to 
Annual Conference. We recognize that special emphasis must be given to ways and means of 
Kviding released time, short terms as well as sabbatical leaves, for ministers to participate in 
agrams of Continuing Education without jeopardizing their responsibilities in the local parish. 
Era financial support from the local church is needed. Increased contributions to the Minis- 
leal Education Funds, with a larger portion designated for Continuing Education, will provide 
llncial resources in each Annual Conference. An educational program to assist the laity to 
perstand fully the significance of Continuing Education for the Ministry is quite in order. 
| The Commission rejoices with The Duke Divinity School in the appointment of Dr. 
iMurry S. Richey as the Director of Continuing Education. To this task he will devote a 
I ificant portion of his time and energy as well as continue teaching in The Divinity School, 
lough this office the Director will coordinate the existing programs, initiate new ones, assist 
i Annual Conferences in their programs, and provide information of other available oppor- 
■ities. A specific goal is to increase the ecumenical dimension with every available oppor- 
lity. 

[i In keeping with the current practice and procedure and on the basis of pp. 355, 356, and 
b. 5h (or their equivalent) of The Book of the Discipline, we recommend: 

A. That the responsibility for Continuing Education be assigned specifically to an 



326 North Carolina Annual Conference 

interboard agency to be Known as "The Committee on Continuing Education for Mini 
ters." 

B. That the Committee be composed of the following: five representatives of 11 
Conference Board of Ministry; one representative each from the following Conferenj 
agencies: Board of Education, Board of Evangelism, Board of Missions, Commission 1 
Town and Country Ministries, Board of Christian Social Concerns, Board of Health a 
Welfare Ministries, Board of Managers of the North Carolina Pastors' School; The Duj 
Divinity School; each Methodist college within the bounds of the Annual Conference; I 
Director of Continuing Education of The Duke Divinity School; a representative of •] 
Program Council staff; and three members at large appointed by the Bishop. 

C. That attention be given to the selection of the representatives so that SI 
existing agencies with specific responsibilities for Continuing Education will have repj 
sentation on the Committee. 

D. That the Committee organization be set up after all representatives of the p ( 
ticipating agencies and institutions have been selected and notified of the organization 
meeting. 

E. That the Committee make its reports to the Annual Conference through ( 
Board of the Ministry. 

F. That all representatives to the Statewide Commission be active members of 
Annual Conference Committee. 

G. That for the quadrennium 1972-76 the North Carolina United Method 
Commission on Continuing Education for Ministers be composed of the 
following :

The staff person on the Annual Council on Ministries responsible for 
continuing education for minister. 

Five representatives from the Annual Conference Committee on < 
Continuing Education for Ministers, including the chairmar 
vice-chairman, and secretary; a representative from one of the college

REPORT OF JOINT COMMITTEE ON DISABILITY 
Ministers' Emergency Fund 

1. The Sustentation Fund is to be used for emergency relief in the form of grants 
effective ministers and lay pastors serving appointments whose salary is paid by the local chuil 
or conference treasurer, and who become disabled to the extent that they are unable 
continue their work, and whose income is not adequate to meet emergency needs. 

2. Emergency appropriations shall be used to bring the disabled ministers' income ud 
a maximum of $4,320 per conference year. If the applicant receives other personal incomii 
excess of $4,320 such additional income shall be deducted from the emergency grant. In 
event shall the emergency funds be used to supplement an applicant's income of $4,32C 
above. 

3. Payment of this $4,320 will be on the basis of $360 per month. Payment will^i 
made only during those months the applicant qualifies for Emergency Funds. No funds will 
appropriated without three-fourths approval of the Joint Committee on Disability. 

4. The Joint Committee on Disability secretary must place all necessary forms in I 
hands of the Cabinet members at the beginning of each conference year. 



Journal of Proceedings 327 

5. In all cases the applications -the district superintendent, the doctor, and the appli- 
nt-shall be completed and forwarded to the chairman of the committee before approval of 
nds will be made. Any minister expecting to receive Emergency Funds at the beginning of the 
nference year should make application not later than two weeks before the annual con- 
rence convenes. 

6. The Joint Committee on Disability may require physiological and psychological 
amination when deemed necessary by the committee. These will be done by a doctor ap- 
oved by the committee and results of tests will be sent to the committee. In such a case the 
mmittee may share the expense of the examination in an amount not to exceed $100. 

7. Funds will be made payable within thirty days following committee approval. 

8. In cases where application for Emergency Funds occur during the session of the 
nual conference, the applicant's district superintendent, and the applicant, when possible, 
all present an oral application to a joint committee of the Cabinet and at least three members 

the Joint Committee on Disability. At this time appropriate action will be taken in keeping 
th the best interest of the applicant and in the spirit of the Emergency Fund. The Written 
rms must be completed and placed with the committee within thirty days of this meeting. 

9. All cases shall be reviewed at the middle of the Conference year to determine progress 
ade in each case. It shall be the iesponsibility of each applicant's district superintendent to see 
at the progress reports-statements from the doctor and the district superintendent-are 
impleted and placed with the committee. Should this review of the applicant's disability 
veal that he is capable of reassuming work, it shall be the responsibility of the Joint Com- 
ttee on Disability to bring this information to the attention of the Cabinet. 

10. Should the disability continue beyond one year or through one annual conference we 
11 attention to the fact that the General Board of Pensions makes medical disability payments, 
ised on a man's service years. We also call attention that it is possible that in some cases 
tirement may offer specific advantages over Emergency Fund aid. 

11. Should the disability continue beyond one year or through one annual conference, 
e Joint Committee will conform to Disciplinary Requirements as found in paragraph 357 
tiich demand annual conference approval. 

12. we recommend mat expenses of travel, telephone, postage, etc., for committee be 
id from the Emergency Fund. 

RESOLUTION 
Be it Resolved, that the Joint Committee on Disability and the Cabinet work with the 
ncies and institutions to utilize talents and abilities of disabled ministers. It is recommended 
iat where it is possible to give full or part-time employment by matching a need of the 
jtitution, or agency, to that of the disabled minister, it is strongly urged to do so. It is 
:ommended that the administrative head of each institution and agency supply a list of 
..ssible positions to the Cabinet and to the Joint Committee on Disability, who will work for 
jutual satisfaction and placement. The final decision will rest with the Cabinet. 
RECOMMENDATIONS 

1. That the Joint Committee on Disability assume the conference coverage of Group 
fe Insurance and Health Insurance only for that time that a person is on Disability. This is in 
;dition to the monthly basic grant of $360, provided no other provisions for such insurance is 
ade. 

2. We recommend to the Annual Conference the appointment of three additional mem- 
rs-at-large to the Joint Committee on Disability in addition to the Cabinet representative, 

le two members from the Board of The Ministry and the two members from the Board of 
nsions. 

3. The Committee strongly recommends that churches and/or interested individuals 
(cognize the contributions made by the ministers of the Conference by providing rent free 
buses for those men who are disabled and cannot continue their pastoral work

The Committee recommends that the Home be given the privilege of solicitation of fum 
for the purpose of carrying on the work of The Home and the financing of another hon 
within the bounds of the Conference 

The Committee joins the Board of Trustees of The Home in recommending "that the ne: 
expansion of facilities should be made as soon as possible with a Home more strategical 
located further east in the Conference and with serious consideration being given to the Gree 
ville-Wilson area. Further, that priority be given to the construction of a Nursing or Health Ca 
facility to not only provide care for The Home's retired members when they become ill but 
also accept nursing cases." 

CHILDREN'S HOME COMMITTEE 

The Committee requests the Bishop to reappoint the Reverend J. W. Lineberger, Sr. tot' 
superintendent and the Reverend James M. Waggoner to be chaplain for the 1972-73 Co 11 
ference year. 

The Committee recommends that The Home be approved for privately soliciting I 
receiving gifts for the purpose of carrying on the work of The Home. 

The Committee further recommends that the Thanksgiving Season continue to be reservs 
as a period for publicizing and promoting the Church's ministry to children through the Met 
odist Home for Children, and that other interests and causes not be permitted to encroa! 
upon or conflict with this traditional emphasis. 

LONG RANGE PLANNING COMMITTEE 

The Committee recommends that we continue to be involved in the work of and give I 
support to SEMAR (Southeastern Methodist Agency for the Retarded) which has as its obje 1 
tives: (1) To render needed services to handicapped, mentally retarded persons to help tha 
attain their full potential. (2). To develop residential services for severely and profound' 
retarded infants and young children. (3) To develop residential day care and rehabilitation f 
trainable and educatable retarded children and youth. (4) To stimulate local churches to mi' 
ister to the retarded. 

In order that our Conference might consider extending the services and ministries of 
Methodist Home for Children and The Methodist Retirement Home to the retarded, the C 
mittee recommends that an in-depth study be made, with the help of SEMAR and other rela 
agencies, and that funding for such a study be provided through the Board of Health ai 
Welfare Ministries. 

The Committee commends the work of the Board of the Ministry in their efforts 
provide counselling for our ministers and their families and join with them in their recomme 
dations to the Annual Conference.

REPORT OF THE MINIMUM SALARY COMMISSION 



1. Recommendations 

The Minimum Salary Commission recommends for the Conference year 1972-73 thatIL 
minimum salaries for all ministers who are serving pastoral appointments be raised $60 ! - ! 
Special exemption permitting this raise has been applied for by our commission on behalf \ m 
the North Carolina Conference. The scale is as follows: 

1. Conference Member: One or more dependent children $7,200; married, $7,00 
single, $6,800. 

2. Associates: One or more dependent children, $6,600; married $6,400; single, $6,20* 4; 
In the event that a pastor on minimum salary changes status he will not receive any k 

than he did the previous year. 

3. Lay Pastor: One or more dependent children, $6,400; married $6,200; single, $6 

4. Student: One or more dependent children, $5,600 plus travel; married, $5,400 plj 
travel; single, $5,200 plus travel. 

Travel allowance is based on the distance of student's parsonage from the school 
attends. When the parsonage is 25 miles or less, it shall be $100; when the parsonage is m' 
than 25 miles but less than 50 miles, it shall be $200; when the parsonage is more than 50 mi 
but less than 75 miles, it shall be $300; when the parsonage is more than 75 miles but less thf&i 



Journal of Proceedings 331 

■miles, it shall be $400; and when the parsonage is 100 miles or more irom tne school $500 

■ be the maximum travel allowance. ' 
1 5. Retired Supply Pastors: $3,000 (including travel and utilities). 

Ij6. Part-time Supplies: Ministers of any status who are serving part-time will receive 

■ne from minimum salary funds, if any, on a basis negotiated with the church, the pastor, 

■listrict superintendent, and the Minimum Salary Commission. 

IrBeing aware of the Scott resolution passed by the 1970 Annual Conference -The Minimum 

m Commission is directed to bring forth an equalized salary scale for full-time lay pastors, 

mate pastors, and Conference members to begin with the Conference year 1973-1974."* 

I The Minimum Salary Commission feels that the above report is the fairest it can arrive at, 

Mderrng fiscal responsibility and educational incentive, and that the lay pastors should 

■an in the same relative position. 

1 Principles Governing the Use of Minimum Salary Funds 

■ The Commission urges each charge receiving Minimum Salary funds, its minister, and 
iict superintendent so to administer the affairs of the charge that it may move as rapidly as 
■ble toward full financial support. 

■ To enable the conference, the commission, and the supperintendents to carry on their 
•erative efforts in understanding, harmony, and for the greatest good for all concerned, the 

■ wing principles and procedures are set forth: 

1. All requests for financial assistance on pastors' salaries for the succeeding year shall 
esented by the district superintendent to the Program Council staff representative to the 

|mum Salary Commission not later than the first day of Annual Conference. 

2. The family or martial status of the pastor at the time of assignment to the charge 
govern the amount paid the minister for the entire conference year. 

3. In considering the salary for a charge, we call attention to the fact that the Commis- 
on Minimum Salary must count salary, travel, utilities, bonuses, and expense allowances as 
y in making appropriations to the charge. We stress the importance of reporting all contri- 
»ns, so that all ministers involved may be treated alike. 

4. No charge may receive from minimum salary more than one-third of the total salary 
ved with the exception of newly-established congregations. Charges must be arranged so 
no more than one-third of the total salary be supplemented from minimum salary funds. 

_ges asking for more than one-third supplement must make an additional application, indi- 
g the reasons for being given special consideration. 

DIVIDING CHARGES 

5. The Commission on Minimum Salary suggests that, as a general practice, no appoint- 
s be made with a membership of less than 400, if the charge is to expect Minimum Salary 
ort. Creation of circuits and/or charges should be on the basis of mutual agreement by all 

on the circuit rather than simply from the desire of the larger church to withdraw 
its own benefit and advancement. 

6. When the division of a charge is considered necessary and minimum salary is to be 
jsted for either of the new charges resulting from such divisions, such project shall be 
snted to the Program Council not later than May 1, so that a satisfactory evaluation can be 
; by the Commission. Without its approval the Commission shall not be obligated to 
de minimum salary support for either of the churches resulting from such division. 

7. In the division of circuits where one church seeks to become a station, is recom- 
ded that such church assume all salary obligations and its proportionate share of single-fig- 
isking. 

a. It is recommended that the remainder of the division pay two-thirds of pastoral 
ort, and its share of single-figure asking. 

b. The Commission on Minimum Salary further recommends that each charge which has 
ved, or shall hereafter receive minimum salary aid, shall reduce this aid by 10% each year 

the charge has accepted full self-support. The district superintendents are to inform all 
5S receiving, or to receive aid in the future, of this regulation which district superinten- 
should report. This requirement must be kept in mind in preparing for any requests. 
:hell amendment passed by conference. 



332 North Carolina Annual Conference 

c. When a charge has been established as a student appointment and desires to be seni 
by a full-time minister, this change may take place at such time as the charge shall tiji 
two-thirds of the amount needed to provide such full-time ministerial support and shall agreej 
reduce the aid by 10% each year. 

d. When there is a division of a charge forming one or more student appointments, 
charge must pay two-thirds of said salary. 

A NEW CHURCH AS A CHARGE 



8. When a new church is to be established and becomes a new charge, the disti 
superintendent shall present for study the complete details of the proposed project not lj-p; 
than May 1 . These details shall be presented by them to the Conference Board of Missions ; i; 
the Commission on Minimum Salary. If such new church is approved by the Board and C( i 
mission, the Commission shall provide Minimum Salary assistance and the Board shall supj n 
ment the salary to make it adequate, and shall assist the new charge in providing living quar 
for the minister and a place to meet and worship. It shall be understood that each year the r I 
charge shall accept more of the budget until it becomes self-supporting. We recommend i 
each new church shall become self-supporting in a period of ten years or less. 

a. Exception will be made if charge has made a reasonable effort to become self-s 
porting and is witling and able to increase salary at least $300 annually, increase its one-iig(v 
askings proportionately, and reach full support within five more years. 

We also recommend that the minimum salary supplement be stopped at any time wheJjH 
full-time pastor takes over employment or is not employed full-time and that such a pastor r 
be reinstated at any time during the year that he returns to full-time ministerial status.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF THE MINISTRY 



;-; 



REPORT 1 

The Board of the Ministry makes the following recommendations: 

1. The Board of the Ministry again recommends a Retreat on the Ministry to be hi 
in each district of the Conference in which the priorities of our servanthood may 
examined. We commend those districts in which these retreats were held during 
current year, for the beginnings of a total assessment of our life and commitment a 
minister of the Gospel. Those retreats yet to be held should focus on the conserval i 
of the ministry, the standards of our profession within the framework of our call) s 
ethics within the church and the community, and ways of developing growth in I 
personal and family life. The dates and places for these retreats are to be set by 
District Program Councils. 

2. Every local church is urged to observe Ministry Sunday on September 17, I 
(or the nearest convenient date) in order that the Ministry, in its nature and funct 
might be brought to the attention of our people. It is imperative that all minis 
seek to enlist highly qualified persons for church occupations. 

3. We look with favor upon the continuing effort being made to recruit semir^; 
graduates for membership in the North Carolina Annual conference, and we comm 
our bishop for the establishment of a special committee for this purpose. We pi 
our continuing interest and assistance in this effort. 

4. The Ministerial Education Fund has proved to be a helpful source of finan 
assistance for the education of our pastors, and we acknowledge the continuing gro 
of this fund year by year. We encourage all of our churches to recognize the sigi 
cance and crucial nature of this fund by accepting and paying their full apportionrr 
for this cause at the earliest possible date. 

5. The Board of the Ministry will continue to join the Commission on Enlistment for Chi 
Occupations in sponsoring a recognition banquet honoring the Members received into 
Connection each year at the sessions of the Annual Conference. 

6. The area of continuing education for ministers is one of the most crucial mat 



Joubnal of Proceedings 3:33 

Ire us and will be dealt with directly through the Committee on Continuing Educa- 

k. The people of the church expect their ministers to be aware of and familiar with 

I changing circumstances of our world today, and without some disciplined study on 

I part of the minister, this is impossible. Paragraph 355 of the 1968 Discipline 

Icates the concern of the general church to the extent of encouraging each congrega- 

|i to release its minister for regular participation in some form of continuing educa- 

in a formal setting. We urge the local churches of our Conference to provide the 

3, financial support, and encouragement for their pastors to participate in programs 

for their continuing education. 

The ministers of this Conference holding special appointments are required to make 

:port to the Conference at least once a year, and the report should include a job 

ysis. Any change in address or nature of service should be reported to the Confer- 

Secretary immediately. The area of service of each special appointment and its 

vance to the church will be reviewed each year. Any minister failing to respond to 

inquiry of the officially designated committee for a period of two consecutive years 

be considered for involuntary location. 

The problems that rise from situations throughout the Conference where ministers 
er appointment to full-time charges have become involved with secular employment 
demands much of their working time and energies demand some realistic attention, 
le study must soon be made and guidelines established for this kind of relationship 
involves commitment to the pastoral ministry, minimum salary and corresponding 
-load, parsonage life, and parish development.

REPORT II 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON COUNSELING RESOURCES 

At the meeting of the Ministers' Wives Association of the North Carolina Annual 
ference in Greenville, N.C., on June 4, 1970, Mrs. Bruce Pate, President of the 
igh District Ministers' Wives, made the motion that a committee be appointed to 
y the need and the possibility of securing a Resource Person for our Conference. 
Resource Person would be one to whom the ministers and their families could go 
counseling for a nominal fee. There was a second to this motion and it carried. 
Helen Brodie was named as chairman of this committee. 

In the ensuing months Mrs. Brodie and her committee have been in contact with 
r Annual Conferences and Areas which have developed counseling programs for 
sters and their families. At the Annual Conference of 1971, meeting in Fayetteville, 
Board of the Ministry in its report made the following recommendations: 

In view of the great need for counseling service for the ministers of our 
Conference and their families, we recommend that the Board of the Ministry join 
with other conference groups to plan and organize an adequate counseling service 
for the ministers' families. 

Representatives from the Board of the Ministry and the Committee from the Ministers' 
es Association have met together, and having studied the material and information gleaned 
n other areas, offer the following report: 

John H. Emerson in an article, "A Survival Kit for Pastoral Stresses," in the national 
istian Advocate, September 30, 1971, writes: 

In 1969, 481 pastors had their conference relations terminated and 473 more were 
unappointable due to disability. The disabilities surely include a good number of 
emotionally "burned out" persons with functional disorders ... To a caring Christian 
Community, sensitive to the needs of its individuals, they are human beings fighting a 
losing battle for survival in a calling to which they had committed themselves at one time 
and for which they expended a great deal of time, energy, and money to be professionally 
trained. How many more still in the ranks of active service are leading lives of "quiet 
desperation" is a haunting speculation. 

Those ministers and their families who are still wth us is the concern of this report. 
We recommend that the Board of the Ministry give immediate implementation to its 
mmendation concerning pastoral counselling made at the last Annual Conference. 



334 North Carolina Annual Conference 

We believe that this can be done by setting up a Conference Committee on Pastoral Care 
who would in turn employ an Area Counselor. The Committee on Pastoral Care would be madi 
up of four (4) representatives from the Board of the Ministry, two (2) Board of Health anc 
Welfare Ministries, one (1) Department of Pastoral Care of Duke Divinity School, and two (2 
from Ministers' Wives Association, as selected by each body. 
A tentative Job Description of an Area Counselor follows: 

I. The Area Counselor shall be qualified as a Pastoral Counselor. This means that hi 
shall be qualified in two fields: 

1. as a psychologist 

2. as a pastor 
He should: 

1. Understand the basic theories of personality development, illness and health 
counseling in individual and group therapy. 

2. Be able to integrate theory and practice and understanding himself sufficientl; 
well so that his needs do not interfer with therapeutic relationships. 

3. Appreciate the pressures and problems of the minister and his family so tha 
he is able to respond with empathy to his concerns and difficulties. 

4. Value community resources so that he avails himself of the counsel of othe 
professionals and make referrals when appropriate. 

II. The Area Counselor is mobile. This does not mean that he calls in the homes o 
pastors. It does mean that he moves out into the area of the conference so that h 
may be more accessible to ministers, their wives, and children. 

His central office, with secretary, is located away from Raleigh. Patterns for trave 
to areas of the conference will be established in response to need, and/or invite 
tion; and many vary according to time and circumstance as budget permits. 

III. Principal duties and responsibilities: 

1. Determine need for, and extent of, testing or therapy at the time of initu. 
or subsequent contact. Integrate psychological findings with insights of, ait' 
information from other interested parties. Cases are not screened and includ 
both persons who come for an opportunity to ventilate and persons who ai 
sick and need referral to other agencies. Referrals are by Area Counselor c 
self-reffered as the need is perceived by the individual minister and/or h 
family. Referral may be made to other centers for counseling when refen; 
seems appropriate. 

2. Individual and/or group psycho-therapy, and/or counseling. Summarize in wri 
ing therapy progress periodically. 

3. Consult with resource people and clinic services regarding specific problei 
cases, broad problem areas of handling motivation and evaluation. 

4. Consult with conference boards and agencies on in-service training, prograr 
development, coordination and evaluation when requested. 

5. Training. Respond to an invitation to teach a course in an appropriate settin 
and/or lead a limited number (up to three a year) of short term experience 
if requested by the Program Council. 

6. Research. Formulate hypotheses, develop research designs and write articl 1 
based on the material collected by his office. Provide consultation on the 1 
activities for other professional personnel and appropriate trainees. 

IV. Supervisory controls over position. 

The Area Counselor shall be professionally and administratively responsible 
the Committee on Pastoral Care of the North Carolina Conference, Uniti 
Methodist Church. 

V. Other significant facts. 

1. It shall be understood that the period of vacation is one month. 2. H 
shall be encouraged to engage in experiences which will continue his educatio 
and competence as approved by the Committee on Pastoral Caie. 
in our investigation of the several counseling programs now in process aero 
the country, we have discovered that the cost of such a counseling servii 
may range from $21,000 to $31,000 per year. The director of the Ohio We 



Journal of Proceedings 335 

Area program states that he believes their program pays for itself. He points 
out that the leaders of the Episcopal Church estimate that it costs the church 
about $47,000 when a man leaves the ministry. This amount is saved in just 
one year if one man receives adequate counseling and stays in the ministry. 
We believe that this service should be set up and that its funding should be 
from Conference World Service funds, since it will be a direct service of the 
Church to its ministers and their families. 

We believe also that this program shall be administratively free from the 
Cabinet and the United Methodist appointive system. We also believe that no 
information is to be given to any person about any person unless that person 
himself first orders that information about himself released.

HOUSING EXCLUSION ALLOWANCE 
INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE DOCUMENT NO. 5045 (10-67) DECLARES: 

"Rental Value of Home Furnished a Clergyman, and cost of utilities paid for him, as 
of his compensation for carrying out his duties as a clergymen, are not income to him, if 1 
duly ordained, licensed, or commissioned." 

"A Rental Allowance to Clergyman, paid as part of his compensation, is not incom 
the extent he used it, in the year received, to provide a home, or pay utilities for a h 
furnished him. However, the church, or organization which employs him must have officj 
designated the payment as a rental allowance before the payment was made." 

"The above rules are also applicable to retired clergymen where a rent-free home or re 
allowance is furnished him in recognition of past services in carrying out his duties 
clergyman." 



Journal of Proceedings 343 



VISED RULING, 63,156, 163-2 CB 79 STATES: 

. . the rental value of the home furnished to a retired minister as part of his 
ensation for services is excludable from his gross income under Section 107 (1) of the 

Also, the rental allowance paid to him as part of his compensation for past services is 
liable under Section 107 (2) of the Code, to the extent used by him for expenses directly 
d to providing a home." 
(See Code Sec. 107, Reg. 1.107.1 [1103.01] 

Therefore the following resolution is presented to the North Carolina Conference of the 
d Methodist Church, meeting in Durham, North Carolina: 

Whereas, The United Methodist Church has a tradition of providing housing (a parsonage) 
s ministers, or in instances where no parsonage is owned by the charge, giving the minister 
1 sing allowance, and 

' Whereas, Retired Ministers of the North Carolina Conference are entitled to the same 
(;ges as those ministers in the Effective Relationship: and 

I Whereas, the most practical method of providing housing for the Retired Ministers is by 
& of rental allowance; 

'Therefore, Be It Resolved, that the amount of $2,400.00 per year be set as a fair and 
liable rental allowance for each Retired Minister of this annual conference; that tne first 
|).00 paid to a Retired Minister each year by The Board of Pensions of The North Carolina 
irence of the United Methodist Church and $1,800.00 of this is designated as the payment 
is Housing Allowance and $600.00 for Utility Allowance. The Housing Allowance is 
lically designated as compensation to the minister for the cost of renting or providing 
lg for himself and his family and those costs related thereto, pursuant to the Code as 

in Document 5045 (10-67). 
:The Board of Pensions emphasizes that the Retired Minister who uses this Housing 
fance must be able to furnish proof that he made expenditures in the amounts claimed. If 
ill $2400.00 cannot be substantiated as expenditures, then claim should be made only for 
lamounts which can be verified. 

;We also remind the minister who uses this allowance, that the amount he claims as a 
tag Allowance exclusion must be included as Income in reporting his Social Security. It is 
>le that reduced Social Security benefits would offset any claims for the Housing 
ance exclusion. Please consult your Social Security Advisor about this matter. 
IFurther, the Board of Pensions absolves itself of any responsibility in the event the 
kal Revenue Service disallows any housing allowance claimed.

REPORT IV 

INSURANCE COMMITTEE REPORT 

The Insurance Committee, with the assistance of its consultant has carefully reviewed the 
ance program of this conference. This review enables us to make the following 
nmendations. 

Group Term Life Insurance 

We recommend that the present Group Term Life Insurance policy with Fidelity and 
anty Life Insurance Co. be continued for the conference year 1972-1973. The coverage is 
main the same, and there is to be no change in the premium rates. 

Blue Cross Blue Shield Hospital Insurance 

A. We recommend tnat the present level of benefits provided in the current Blue Cross 
Shield Hospital Insurance policy be continued without any changes in benefits. 

B. We recommend that the premium rate increase be adopted. The premium rate increases 
7.65 for individual, $15.36 for parent and child, $21.42 for family, per quarter. 

C. We call attention to the rate increase for those of the group over age sixty-five. 
:tive July 1, 1972, the already approved quarterly increase is $6.45 per individual over 
-five. We also point out that it is possible there will be an additional rate increase for this 

depending upon the action by the North Carolina Insurance Department. 
We recommend that all increased quarterly premium rates be paid by the minister and 
ther individuals insured in this group policy. 

We recommend that the Chairman of The Insurance Committee appoint an Insurance 
is Review Committee to receive appeals from the ministers or other insured persons who 
here have been certain inequities in their insurance claim payments under the level of 
Its provided in the insurance program, and to help establish an understanding with all 
ps concerned in these matters. Further, the Chairman shall attempt to include on this 
littee a representative from The Board of The Ministry, a member of The Board of 
ons, a Cabinet representative, a Hospital Administrator or a person named by such an 



348 North Carolina Annual Conference 

administrator, and a doctor, who is either a M. D.or a Surgeon. It is further recommended 
the present chairman of The Insurance Study Committee serve as Chairman of this Cla! 
Review Committee. 

F. We further urge all ministers to cooperate in our efforts to more effectively coordinl 
benefits where more than one Blue Cross policy is affected, or any other group insurance pol 
is involved. This means completing a form for this purpose, which will be made available at 
first ministers meeting in each district, and return this form to the District Superintendent, I 
in turn will forward it to the Insurance Committee. One purpose for this recommendation if 
keep the premiums from further increase. 

Miscellaneous 

We of the Insurance Committee are very concerned over the rising cost of the Blue Ci 
Blue Shield Hospital Insurance. We are aware that premium costs relate to the benefits paidi 
is our opinion that the members of our group policy need to be provided information as to I 
to use the group insurance plan to its fullest benefits to the policy holder, but at the same t 
use the protection discreetly so as to keep the costs from continuing to increase. Therefore.: 
recommend that each District Superintendent make use of a film about this subject, whir 
available from Blue Cross Blue Shield. We further recommend that this film be shown as soo> 
possible, in order that all may be made conscious of their personal responsibility in keer 
costs from rising even more.

tional payment, which in the case of pastors, is provided by the charge.

le Pastor's Report, Table II. 

No transfer of funds shall be made by any agency from one line item in the budget to 
ther without approval of the Commission on World Service & Finance. 

We recommend that the Conference authorize the Commission on World Service and 
to employ the services of a Management-Counsultant Specialist to make a full and 
financial and management study of the North Carolina Annual Conference. 

Annual Conference Entertainment. We call attention to the recommendation which was 

ted in 1971 which stated that: "Where it is possible to do so, we are asking that the local 
ge underwrite the expenses for its delegates to the Annual Conference Session beginning 

the Annual Conference in 1972." 

V. 

We recommend approval of the requests of the following agencies for the privilege of 
:iting funds throughout the Conference: 

1. The Christmas Offering 1972 for district superintendents' program and/or projects. 
i should be clearly defined in plenty of time to have successful promotion.

3. The Board of Education to solicit from church groups and individuals, materials and 
ey for specific projects for the four camps of the North Carolina conference. 

4. Interconference Commission on Campus Ministry for the privilege of private solicitation

ches of the conference.

VI. 

We recommend the continuation of A.M. Pullen & Company as auditors.

Id Service and Finance and the Conference Treasurer shall serve as the executive committee 
te Commission on World Service and Finance. 



358 North Carolina Annual Conference 

The Conference fiscal year will close May 31, 1973. We shall make every effort to pay 
7/12ths of our current conference year financial obligations to the General Conference bj 
December 31 which coincides with the General Conference fiscal year. Payments will actuallj 
be made to the General Conference only on the basis of collections through December 31 ir 
amounts not to exceed the General Conference apportionment on the basis of the Genera' 
Conference calendar year. 

We call attention to the fact that the Pastor's salary as set by the Charge Conference is fo; 
a conference year, that is, from one session of the Annual Conference to the next session of the! 
Annual Conference. In keeping with the conference fiscal year closing May 31, each charge . 
shall pay the salary promised the pastor for the conference year by the date. 

We recommend that m subsequent years the Conference Claimants item in the said 
budgets of the North Carolina Annual Conference become an item of prior claim. 

We recommend that the Conference Treasurer be directed to pay out of Earnings on j 
Central Funds a sum of $10,000.00 as a down-payment on the parsonage for the newly 
formed District in our Conference. This payment shall constitute a final settlement for those 
charges placed in the new district for any equity they may have had in other district 
parsonages.

County, and 

WHEREAS, Camp Chestnut Ridge exists for the purpose of providing a sanc^aary for rf 
church's ministry in God's unspoiled oat-of -doors, and 

WHEREAS, the presence of such a landfill adjacent to Camp Chestnut Ridge, with a 1,000 fo< 
joint border with the camp, would be inconsistent with the established purposes for tf 
operation of the camp, and 

WHEREAS, accompanying problems of such a landfill would include 1) increased litter ar

Be It Resolved, the the North Carolina Annual Conference approve and request that a 

special offering to be known as the "Emergency Appeal for Bennett College, Greensboro

Conference Board of Education, 

Reverend Herman S. Winberry, President

Reverend H. Arthur Phillips, President 

ADOPTED SUPPLEMENTARY RESOLUTIONS 
OF THE BOARD 
OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL CONCERNS 
We recommend: 

"Removal of abortion from the criminal code and placement under regulations 
relating to other procedures of standard medical practice. The problem of abortion 
performed by non-licensed physicians would be dealt with in the framework of the 
law." 

(Supplement to Goal 89) 
, We recommend the following as the policy statement of the North Carolina Annual 
Conference concerning day-care programs by local churches: 

"Our primary concern is to provide high-quality day care for children at minimum 
cost to parents. All centers will be required to meet standards for State licensing under 
the law. This calls for two levels, one a minimum and the other including higher 
voluntary standards. Since these in any case are not very high, we desire that our 



360 North Carolina Annual Conference 

churches set standards above those required by state law in terms of facilities, program 
and expression of the church's Christian concern for children. Personnel should have 
the highest possible qualifications and training that churches can secure. We 
recommend that the church establish smaller groupings than the state law requires, 
especially for children under four years of age." 
(Supplement to Goal 96) 
3. We recommend United Methodist efforts in support of the reform of North Carolina 
Correctional Institutions with adoption of the following resolution: 

"Whereas the prisons of our State should not be instruments of vengeance, but 
correction and rehabilitation, and 

"Whereas all the inmates of our prisons, regardless of the nature of their offense, are 
persons with whom Christ has identified and whom He has called us to serve, and 

Whereas society is not benefited or successfully protected or crime diminished by 
pr
